InformationWeek Spotlights Viral Art: A Gallery Of Security Threats

The two accepted a commission from MessageLabs, now part of Symantec, and set to work to find out what visual representations of computer viruses would look like.
The patterns and rhythms Dragulescu and Julian Hodgson discovered in data they extracted from computer viruses gave shape to a series of images called "Malwarez."
