Viruses

From RISC OS

Jump to: navigation, search

Malware on modern-day RISC OS is thought to be non-existent, largely down to the size of the userbase rather than technical immunity. A number of malware strains were written for the platform in the early-1990s, and were mostly distributed via floppy disc, usually through public domain compilations that were shared between users or sold by public domain libraries.

A number of anti-virus tools were available, namely VProtect, Slayer and VZap. All of which are no longer available for download online as of August 2017.
