In an astonishing blend of art, technology, and irony, a laptop infected with six of the world’s most notorious viruses has been auctioned off for a staggering $1.3 million USD.

This unique piece, an unexpected canvas for digital malware, harbours the destructive forces of ILOVEYOU, MyDoom, SoBig, WannaCry, and DarkTequila. Collectively, these malicious programs have been responsible for billions in economic damages globally, challenging cybersecurity infrastructures and experts alike.

While the idea of purchasing a malware-infested machine might seem counterintuitive, it speaks volumes about the evolving perceptions of art and the imprints of digital culture.
