    This may be the world's smallest virus. It only impacts the oldest PCs and shouldn't be a threat. Writing a something like this in just 4 characters of compiled code is indeed interesting. If only other developers were that efficient ;)

    This is a four byte application which exploits a defect in older Pentium chips. This causes the system to reboot.
