HTML.Malware or Malware [Hint: Start with both technical name and common name, and put bold on both] is a self-replicating worm that spreads through retrievable domain names. It is part of the Malware Wiki family.

[Hint: To do an internal link, put double brackets around the page name. For example CIH]

[Hint: Start with a brief introduction of the virus, but do not spoil the payload]


Hint: To introduce a sub-section, type three = signs instead of two. To make a sub-section of that add four and so on...

When run, the file will look in the computer's Hard Drive for .doc and .docx files and attach a macro to them, which will delete them upon opening.

Spreading Routine

Hint: To add a gray field, simply leave a space at the beginning of the line on Source mode

The virus will spread itself through MS Outlook and retrievable domains.

Subject: Check this out!
Message Body: Check out this epic Flash game, you'll love it!
Attachment: Ex1.html


Hint: Do not state to use a certain antivirus, rather, state to use an antivirus.

To remove the virus from the system, install an antivirus and scan the computer.


Hint: take some screenshots of the malware, then, upload them to the wiki, and add them using a gallery. The syntax for a gallery is:



Hint: To introduce external links, type a single bracket, followed by the URL and then the display text.
For example: [ http://www.google.co.uk Google] will appear as Google.


Sample Page for software

Some pages, are software pages, either antivirus or some other kind of protection. Here is how to properly format one:

{{Infobox Software
          |name= (software name)
          |logo= (software logo (image must be uploaded to the wiki))
          |image= (software image (image must be uploaded to the wiki))
          |caption= (image caption)
          |author= (person who made the software)
          |developer= (company/team who made the software)
          |latestreleaseversion_date= (current version of software)
          |programlanguage= (programming language software was made in)
          |os= (operating system(s) software is available in)
          |language= (langauge(s) software is available in)
          |status= (if the software is still alive, or if it was discontinued)
          |type= (the type of software ex. antivirus)
          |license= (license type of the software)
          |url= (website/download page for the software)

Example: <infobox>

 <title source="name">
   <default>Sample Page</default>
 <image source="image">
   <label>Developed by</label>
   <label>Latest Release</label>
   <label>Program Language</label>
   <label>File Type</label>


Antivirus Is a German-based antivirus made by Wikia. [hint: Start with name, then, detail where the software was made in, and what company/person made it.]

Hint: To do an internal link, put double brackets around the page name. For example CIH.

Hint: Start with the details of the software, starting with functions.


Hint: Use small headers to section each function


The firewall protects the user [hint: use "the user" not "you"] from certain websites, so only trusted websites can be accessed. Ex. Google.

Safe mode with protection

If the user gets a dangerous virus, the user can reboot into Safe mode with protection, so the user is protected and can easily get rid of the virus.


Hint: take some screenshots of the software, then, upload them to the wiki, and add them using a gallery. The syntax for a gallery is:
