The Viruses are 3 small horrible creatures that fly and fire strange balls to their enemies! You might think that viruses, as always, were created by humans to attack the crypto-corporations but these little guys are completely different.
A little boy was playing with his Raspberry Dog and got sick on top of him messing the circuits. He and his dad cleaned the machine up, turned it on and surprise! The dog was still alive but something happened… the artificial intelligence inside him was not the same.
It was a dog, but it was also something else it couldn’t understand and suddenly, it threw up. Some nuts, a couple of cables and 3 little things that started jumping around killing the boy, his dad and the dog.
These horrible small creatures with their own Artificial Intelligence managed to develop some kind of ammunition that explodes whenever they hit something, leaving nothing but dust behind. Nobody knows what they are made of, most prefer not ever to know.
They are very fast and can fly around anything and being 3 of them, they always attack from 3 different angles. Don’t let them near your devices because they can spread cybernetic viruses without even touching them!

A computer virus is a computer program designed to replicate within the system, thus, infecting other areas of the computer and/or networks.
The term was coined in 1985 by Fred Cohen, although John von Neumann was already working on a theoretical self-replicating computer program.
A virus is usually deployed taking advantage of system vulnerabilities but they are usually attacking the most used operating system in the world; Microsoft Windows, employing a variety of mechanisms and infecting new hosts.
The reasons are many, but usually the motives are just to have fun, seeking profit or ransomware, political messages, sabotages, personal amusement, or just exploring artificial life or even trying evolutionary algorithms.
Viruses do not attack immediately, they usually go first into a hibernation process until it is triggered by an action. This action can be when a specific program is launched in the 50th time, like the Creeper virus did on Arpanet back in the 1970’s (yes, that is before the internet!)
