Definition Edit

A scripting virus is very similar to macro viruses. The primary difference is that a macro virus is written in a language understood by a particular application, such as a word processor, whereas a scripting virus is written in a language understood by a service run by the operating system.

Overview Edit

For example, the Windows Scripting Host feature on some Microsoft Windows operating system can execute scripts written in VBScript. Examples of well-known scripting viruses are First virus and Love Stages.
