Simple prepender virus written in GoLang
So this guy asks me in a job interview last week “Have you ever developed in Go?” and well what’s best to learn a language than writting a prepender (probably a lot of things but don’t kill my thrill)? There you have it, the probably first ever binary infector written in GoLang (SPTH LIP page “outdately” confirms that). Basically a port from my Linux.Zariche ‘cause my life is in a hurry.

Linux.Zariche: a Vala virus

Simple prepender virus written in Vala
Vala is an object-oriented programming language with a self-hosting compiler that generates C code and uses the GObject system. Vala is syntactically similar to C# and and rather than being compiled directly to assembly or to another intermediate language, Vala is source-to-source compiled to C, which is then compiled with a platform’s standard C compiler, such as GCC. You can also create VAPI files which are basically native C (not C++) functions you can import to Vala code (I will show an example later).
