Science and Technology Library - Chapter 9
There were even more bookshelves that were over a hundred meters tall, and they couldn’ t see the end. Only this type of scene could make one sigh with emotion. Knowledge was endless.
Chen Mo walked to the desk and opened the dark red book. Elder Shu’s figure instantly appeared in the library.
Elder Shu looked at Chen Mo and nodded slightly.
“You’re still trying hard to finish reading 100 books so quickly. Now that you have the chance to extract a technique, do you want to extract it now?”
“Elder Shu, I want to ask if there’s any computer anti-divine technology here that can kill and extort the virus?” Chen Mo asked.
If he went to research it, he would definitely be able to research it, but it would take too much time. If he had that kind of energy, it was better to use this time to read and exchange for technology.
“What kind of virus?” Elder Shu asked.
“It’s outside, on the two computers on my desk.” said Chen Mo.
Elder Shu closed his eyes. After a while, he pointed his finger. A huge screen of light descended from above the Science and Technology Library.
On the light screen was the screen that was used to extort the virus.
“That’s it?” Elder Shu asked.
“It’s very simple to investigate and kill this type of computer virus. You can solve it,” said Elder Shu. ” Now, I’ ll give you two choices. One is that you’ ll freely choose one of the antiviral technologies. The other is that I’ ll give you the code of the virus and you’ll design your own antiviral procedures. As a price for the virus code, you’ ll be free to use it.”
“Elder Shu, are you testing me?”
“You can think that way,” said Elder Shu. “I told you from the start that the Science and Technology Library isn’t there for you to sit and eat. Otherwise, there won’ t be so many books.”
Elder Shu pointed at the endless bookshelf.
“Then let’s do the second choice,” Chen Mo said resolutely.
After reading nearly a hundred books on computer and hacking technology and the source code for extorting the virus, he believed that he wouldn’t have to spend too much time designing an antiviral procedure.
It was just that this randomly chosen technique was a bit profound. Right now, he didn’t have anything. If he were to randomly give a technique that he couldn’t use or a technique that was extremely useless, then he could only wait for next time. It was time for luck.
Elder Shu nodded and pointed at the screen of light. Countless numbers of code were listed on it. Then, the screen of light shrunk and turned into a book that fell on Elder Shu’s hand. He pressed it onto Chen Mo’s head.
The densely packed code was engraved in Chen Mo’s mind, and the root of the blackmailing virus was also clearly understood by Chen Mo’s mind.
Various thoughts interweaved in his mind.
“After you design the procedures to investigate and kill the virus, come over and choose the technology. Perhaps, there will be unexpected gains at that time.” Elder Shu said meaningfully.
After retreating from the Science and Technology Library, Chen Mo sat in front of the computer. With the source code of the virus, the following matters became much simpler.
He already had an idea, but this thought was yet to be verified by his design.
When he opened the computer, Chen Mo started knocking on the code.
The news of Binhai University being attacked by the blackmailing virus quickly spread to the web. In this information age, the news spread throughout the country in the shortest amount of time possible.
This news sounded like a bugle starting a charge.
The higher-ups in the country were also said to be attacked by the blackmail virus. The higher-ups, the circle of friends, and the discussion hall were filled with wails.
The virus was called the ‘Heart of Eternity’. It was a variant of the ‘Black of Eternal’.
It was the same as last time. It was mainly distributed through the attachment of the message, the fishing address, and the link to the web. The user would be able to use the malicious site to store the virus, as well as the web page.
The difference was that if one opened it, the virus would affect the computer’s network, and then spread throughout the entire region. It’s transmission ability was greatly enhanced.
The last time the blackmailing virus appeared, it only locked the documents, videos, and hard disk information. This time, the entire computer system was locked to death, and it was utterly unable to enter the computer’s desk.
The main area of the country’s Eternal Heart attack, which was infected by the blackmail virus variant, was major universities and companies. It was spread through the network of various institutes and companies.
A lot of the higher-ups shut down the campus network in order to prevent the network from infecting the Eternal Heart.
The virus was still spreading. They were unable to stop it at all.
More and more cases of the virus had appeared, and the web was on fire. Fears and blessings coexisted. The web had also become more cautious, not daring to randomly open a few websites or unknown products.
This time, it was a variant of the extortion virus. It was more perfect than before, and the holes had already been fixed. The speed of its spread was much faster than before. In a short period of time, it had already completely spread.
After the crisis of extorting the virus last time, the crisis of the computer virus engulfed the entire world once again.
All the news organizations had placed the matter of extorting the virus on the front page.
“Hua Xia has already closed virtual currency transactions. What about the computer virus?”
“Blue Mutate of Eternity: The Heart of Eternity? It has infected nearly a million computers.”
“Under the influence of the’ Heart of Eternity’, the price of bitcoins continues to rise.”
On the web, all types of reports covered the heavens and Earth. Almost all of them were affected by the news about the discovery of a new variant of the ‘Heart of Eternity’.
The entire continent was in a gloomy state. The main areas of the attacks were the stock trading center, banks, government departments, universities, energy companies, underground systems, companies, super markets, and others.
The Euroneer Exchange was forced to halt the market, causing the stock market to fall into chaos. There were also many banks whose computers were attacked, and their machines were unable to withdraw money.
The nation’s medical service system suffered another disaster, and the computer systems of every hospital under its control were also infected, making it impossible for some rescue and emergency vehicles to be dispatched.
In just one day, the ‘Heart of Eternity’ had already spread to the Middle East, the Southern Sea, the Oceanic, and the South East regions.
Following the spread of the ‘Heart of Eternity’, the blackmail virus had officially turned into a world-wide crisis. This time, the mutation was several times more terrifying than the previous one.
In the world, over a million computers were infected and had their screens locked. If the system was to be installed, all information within the computer would be lost.
Quite a few people’s important information was still in the computer, so they definitely couldn’t upgrade the system. They were still waiting for a solution.
Under the influence of the ‘Heart of Eternity’, the stock of the company fell by 2%, and its market value evaporated almost 11 billion.
The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation also opened a case, searching for a hacking organization that created a variant of the blackmail virus.
After finding the source of the ‘Heart of Eternity’, they quickly discovered that this was the result of high-ranked hacking that had been meticulously planned a few months in advance. It was still impossible to investigate.
Many network security companies also issued warnings as soon as possible to warn users not to open any suspicious messages.
Various measures and various reports covered the heavens and the Earth.
Five days had passed. The Eternal Heart had infected over a million computers.
Many network security companies could only give advice, but there wasn’t a single true antivirus program that could kill and extort the virus.
There were only two days left for the first batch of infected computers. If they were unable to find a method to kill the virus within two days, the information within the computer would be completely destroyed.
Many people were already in despair as they began to pay using virtual currency, like bitcoins, to acquire the key to unlock the computer.
Ever since the last time the virus was extorted, people had seen holes in the supervision of virtual currency like bitcoins, which provide channels for money making, money transfer, tax evasion, and other crimes.
After the first crisis of the virus, the market supervision department of the government gradually shut virtual currency trading platforms down.
This time, the crisis had made it impossible for a computer to redeem itself.
Some people could only pray that they would be able to find a way to kill the virus at the final moment. Otherwise, all important information in their computers would be lost.
