Conclusion On Bios virus - It is possible that for a virus to infect your BIOS but still you have a good piece of luck that there are very rarely occuring BIOS’ virus.
I recently met my one of my friend who is the victim of BIOS infected by virus. Since then I am wandering whether it is possible for a virus to accomodate and infect my BIOS. I want to know is it possible to get rid of the virus by formatting the hard-drive again? .
Yes, it’s not only possible but sure that any virus can infect BIOS of your computer. But it’s really a fortunate fact that desdigning a virus to target a BIOS is a topic of less interest for virus creaters because the BIOS specific virus can just attack on the particular computer for which the specific BIOS is working while there are comparatively large variety of viruses which are designed by targetting windows.
It is now known by everyone that virus designers are mal-intensed to create virus and lead them to infect huge amount of machines all over the world. They always aim to have the way i which they can dump more and more computer systems. Now-a-day s these mal-thinking personalities are mostly interested to target the computers running with windows as their operating system. It is definitely a world known fact that windows is running as the operating system of millions of computer systems so that windows destroying virus can caught a very huge amount of people as victim. While it is a difficult job to design a spcial virus to hit the BIOS. Different manufacturers have different kind of BIOS and it totally differs with the BIOS of different computer. This causes the failure of vrus and just a wastage of time and energy spared by the designer.
So there are rare BIOS infecting viruses found but they have a specific property that they can’t be omitted from your computer even if you have reformat and delete everything in thr hard-drive.
Still the solution is quit simple such as, re-set your BIOS or upgrade your BIOS.
I was caught by similar problem and found it very late that the BIOS of my computer is infected by a virus. Later I consulted with many of my friends and asked to manufacturer of my computer to resolve the problem and they helped me in reseting the BIOS.
