What happens when you run a Windows virus in Linux?

By | January 27, 2005

a NewsForge reporter decided to see what would happen if he purposefuly ran a couple of Windows viruses in Linux (using WINE, of course). Why would he do this? The result? “When I went out of my way to be part of the Windows community by doing my part to propagate Windows viruses (lots of Windows users seem to think this is important, seeing as how they run random executables and use Microsoft Outlook and Internet Explorer) I discovered that it couldn’t easily be done with GNU/Linux tools. “
