Search button reveals all.

This has been covered recently other thread. I suggest you find it.

You're lucky I was nice and didn't merely link you to LMGTFY (Google is a good choice for you as well).

Come back and tell us what you find.

Viruses inject their code into other files. It's exactly like biological viruses which inject their DNA into cells and hijack the cell's various facilities. Obviously, that's where the name comes from.

Just to clear up some confusion:

fashizzlepop quoted something that was posted, but another mod had deleted. The quote is a Base-64 encoded string, which fashizzlepop decoded in his post. Why this person decided to encode his post, I will never know.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.
