Biology says viruses are not all bad for you, they are beneficial in many ways. But, when it comes to technology the concept of a good virus isn’t something that we hear a lot. This is probably going to change soon.
Japan is currently developing a computer virus which will help in countering cyberattacks. The development makes Japan the first country in the world to attempt such a stunt.
Sources close to the developments hopes that the Malware will be able to break into a computer system, working as a deterrent against cyberattacks. However, this isn’t something that will be used for commercial purposes. The Japan Government clarified that the purpose of developing such a virus is to enhance the country’s defense capabilities.
If all goes well the computer virus will be ready for the prime time by next March.
