Interview with The Unforgiven
Heya.. To start with, what do you occupy with lately?
Life. Gf, friends, work, parties and all other things
you can enjoy doing while you still are a young adult.
Which of your viruses are you most proud of?
None really, don't they all suck? Immortal Riot are though
responsible for quite a few really awesome viruses. Not
me in person though.
Some of your viruses were pretty destructive.
How do you think about that now?
I don't really think anything about it since it's all
behind me. I much rather live in the present than in the past.
Do you think the VX scene has changed a lot
in all those years and do you think it was better then
I am not really a part of the scene anymore but I try to lurk
around and keep myself a bit updated. I'm though not really
qualified to make such a comparison.
However, I don't really think you can compare things now and then,
if a person start writing viruses now, he might fancy the scene
as much I did back in 1993.
What do you think about all the Internet related viruses
now and do you think there will be much more of them?
Internet based malware (viruses, worms and so on) is indeed an
interesting thing and I'm certain that we'll see more virus
alike programs circulating on the net in the future.
Internet is very vulnerable and many people will target
the net due to the fact that internet technology and internet
(un)security are interesting topics and if an attack is done properly,
it can affect a lot of people in a very short amount of time.
Which old viruses do you like and which new ones?
I like all viruses. It's a great thing to see that people
still sit around and code things just for fun. Programming
for me and most other Immortal Riot guys is nowadays stricly
Which virus authors and groups do you respect?
Everyone who deserves it. Further information about this can
read in our ezines called Insane Reality which all be found at our
site located at http://www.coderz.net/ImmortalRiot.
What made you decide to start Immortal Riot?
Curiousity, I think. I'm a very curious person about pretty
How important was virus writing for you?
Compared with what? Viruswriting was a hobby,
the scene were our playground and viruswriting
the ticket to acceptance.
Did you base your viruses or virus payloads on real life issues?
I based some names from real life and I got motivation
from real life. Everything is about real life issues in one way
What do you think about infected users?
I think they should remove the virus.
How do you think most people caught your viruses?
Probably with anti-virus programs.
I only know one person who caught one of my viruses
([Bad Attitude]). He saw "Immortal Riot" scolling all
over his monitor and later became a very good coder and
an Immortal Riot member.
Do you still occupy with computers a lot?
I work with computers, but on my spare time? Maybe an hour
a week, to pay bills, write emails to friends and ex-girlfriends
and of course to annoy people with SMS :).
Is there anything else you want to mention?
Naw, not really.
Any greets or hate messages?
Greets goes to everyone who ever has been mentioned in a positive
matter in Insane Reality and of course to all of Immortal Riot.
Special greets must go to Metal Militia.
Thanks a lot for the interview :)
