    Viruses have different uses. Some are to create botnets, others are just to see how far they can spread, others are just about tools they can use for personal game, and then yes, there are those out there strictly about doing as much damage as possible.

    There are a myriad of reasons people create them that I haven't listed.

    To show they can do it. I just wish the courts would throw the book at these idiots along with the hackers. These viruses and hackers cost business millions of dollars every year

    I'm convinced that the main reason for creating these CVs are to sell more CV Protection Licenses.

    Call me crazy.

    While we are going conspiracy theory.

    And so Apple can go well look Mac's don't have these problems, but look at all those virus's you will have to deal with in Windows.

    Because nerds are nerds.

    I once worked with a guy who would brag that he and his good friend would entertain each other by creating and sending each other computer viruses.

    Nerds are nerds.

    Some people are just anarchists that like to create mayhem. Same reason some people choose to deface beautiful buildings with graffiti.
