in WinXP there is a command to type in the dos prompt that send messeges to other computers. example: c:\>net send username/IP/computername Hello!
if you type * instead of IP/usrname/computername the messege will display on all WinXP computers in the network.
this command works from the shell command in FB so

Code: Select all

Do
Shell "net send * Hi!"
Loop

willl send infinite spam messeges :)

I have done this frequently back in my scool days with "Ye Ole" qbasic *g*
Some bright tryed to hide it by removing qbasic.exe.
But as NT has an edit.exe and not a .com and so you just needed to put the right command line parameter in and you had your old qbasic back.

@BastetFurry:
You laugh, but I have long thought of the possibility of such a thing.

there used to be anti-virus viruses on the Atari ST. I do have a problem with these though, as an unexpected error or bug could potentially cause more harm than good.
