Sharpei virus hits C# note

Virus writers took another shot at Microsoft's .Net vision.

On Friday, antivirus companies received a copy of a worm called Sharpei, which is partially written in Microsoft's newest computer language, C#, and designed to infect computers loaded with the .Net framework.

Antivirus company Network Associates gave the infectious program a "low" rating for risk but highlighted it as the second example of a virus writer attempting to infect parts of the .Net framework.

"It would work without using (C#)," said Vincent Gullotto, vice president of research for Network Associates' antivirus emergency response team. "It's just another try at .Net."
