Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker [C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\MOVIEMK.exe] is a highly virulent productivity virus.  Not only effecting the computer it is hosted on, but having a socially engineered payload which self-propagates through USB sticks, video/data projectors, and various presentation media.

Reports have come in of this virus' unique capability to be transmitted through analogue forms such as VHS tape, and occasionally film.

  • Hours of time wasted by 'editor' and 'viewers'
  • Computer lock-ups and data-loss
  • Lowered expectations of quality
  • Copyright infringement
  • Physical injury
  • Death
