Hi all. This is a very special request. In the times of the Windows 95 Betas, MS shared some infected CDs with some beta testers. Has anyone here have such disks?

Why would like those cd's (i dont have them).
Or do you collect virusses (it can, somebody collects stamps, or betas or virusses).

It was probably an accident. In other words, the CD-ROM's were probably defective.

back in that time about 99% of the PCs have been infected because everyone swaped floppys with their friends - remember, this was more than 10 years ago - even the most known security specialist(s) (e.g. Peter Norton) did not believe in Viruses
