proof-of-concept virus

A proof of concept virus is written by an individual with advanced programming skills, usually to 'show off' their programming talents or to point out a vulnerability in a specific software. Usually authors of proof-of-concept viruses will send these programs to an anti-virus software developer, and the programmer would be more apt to produce a blueprint on how the virus would work, rather than launching the virus maliciously.
