We have a discussion going on in my Networking class during our OSI model and TCP/IP model lessons. I have researched this, but cannot seem to come to a decent conclusion. Any pearls of wisdom or opinion on this topic would be appreciated. ~KatB
I would say that it depends on your definition of a virus. If it is a program that is designed to self replicate then it would most likely exist in layers 5-7. If it is a bot designed to disrupt service then it will probably use layers 1-4. So what kind of virus are we talking about?
