Implementing genetic algorithms in virusses

I have personally always been fascinated by evolution and am a strong believer that it is the truth about how organisms evolve. I have also spend many thoughts and codes and readings trying to figure out if it could also be implemented in computer virusses, of course something completely different.

Normally computer virusses either don't change them selves (static), they encrypt themselves with one or multiple decryptors or they completely change their body (hard to do). With the second and the third way virusses try to completely change their layout / code use / register use etc. This theory will try to prove that another way could be better.

In this theory I mainly describe how a fileinfecting virus could use genetics. This can however be applied to any spreading program including worms, as long as you can be creative.
