    You would have to ask a large number of virus writers to find the answer to that question. You'll probably need to find other forums in order to find those writers. -- Tom

    A key on what language is what is to know your target system. Since we do not write viruses, you won't find any support for illegal activities in this forum you would be better looking else where. Be pro-active and write some protection software.

    I've found assembly language provides a lot of low-level control of computers - that's the language that many viruses used to be written in. The other powerful language (that's simpler to use) is C, which I know has been used a lot in malware development. Here's an oldie but goodie resource on C programming: http://www.amazon.com/Waite-Groups-Programming-Using-Turbo/dp/067230399X A good resource for malware analysis is: https://www.virustotal.com/en/
