Technical Details


In the generator's documentation, the author prohibits the use of the generator in viruses and other malicious software. He claims to have developed GPE solely for the purpose of protecting data and programs from unauthorised use. These claims are lent some credence by the fact that the author has included his apparently real name and phone number in the introductory notes.

Version 1.00 of the Guns'n'Roses Polymorphic Engine was released in March 1994. So far, the generator is not known to have been linked to any virus. It's size is about two kilobytes.
