DNA of the Corona Virus

Published March 6, 2020 by tindertender

A short compilation of links and comments found on Twitter about the coronavirus.

This is the complete DNA of the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). We are being attacked by a 8 kilobytes virus. Remember this when you hate on computers security.

Note: Need to see hi-res version

Here’s the MD5 hash of the sample: 48ec6b4db501f4860370e558145ec818. Stay safe!

It has remote exploitation, persistence, AV evasion and works on multiple incompatible platforms (bats, humans, dogs, etc) all in 7.25 KB. Ah but I’m sure you write very tight shellcodes.

People are asking for a download link so here is this Pastebin of the Covid19 RNA found online: https://pastebin.com/VZ6BfvuK

Didn’t expect the virus to be an anime picture!

It really looks like a firmware dump to me. I think in some way, it’s exactly that.

For the pedants out there, the end sequences for viral RNA is not exactly the same as chromosome telomeres, but they have the same function, to protect the genetic material.

Or I could be wrong and it could.just be an artifact of the sequencing software they used:

The “old legacy code” has been refined and honed for millennia. It self upgrades. It finds it’s own bugs & eliminates them. It locates and repairs faulty hardware whilst online. The miracle is that it doesn’t go wrong more often.

If that was all it takes to replicate it using CRISPR or other techniques I would be kinda scared. Please tell me there is more to a virus than 8kb of RNA 😟
