The intent of “Malicious Software,” as the name suggests, is to create harm or damage to systems or to people or to both. As science can be used for both good and bad purposes, software can also be used for both good and bad purposes. Some person or groups use software or exploit software loopholes inappropriately, for fun or to highlight their technical skills. Many others do it for financial gains, for taking revenge, or to create fear in others. Of late, these are misused for political or religious gains or for terrorism. Even many of the countries are spying on each other. Militaries of many countries have a Cyber Warfare division.
