HOUSTON – Scientists at Texas University have created a computer malware that constantly mutates and is invisible to virus scanners; meanings, once a computer is infected with the malware it can’t be removed.

The scientists goal is to developed a new cyber attack that can’t be stopped.
Computer scientists Vishwath Mohan and Kevin Hamlen created the malware by combining code from several good software packages, thus making it invisible to virus scanners.
The malware called ‘ Frankenstein’ creates mutations by following instructions of ‘good’ software coding, thereby fooling anti-virus programs and allowing the mutations to be registered as ‘good’ software.
The new malware is very adaptable in that it uses more and more ‘good’ instruction code to recreate itself.
Once a computer has been infected, Frankenstein immediately analysis and takes parts of the computer’s processing software and uses the code from several processes to create an entirely new malware.
That’s how Frankenstein manages to fool anti-virus programs and can then duplicate itself extremely fast between computers.
The Frankenstein malware project has been financed by the Unites States Air Force.
