There are hundreds of thousands of viruses out there (if not millions) and they often designed for different objectives. Most of them fall under the following categories:

To take control of a computer and use it for specific tasks
To generate money
To steal sensitive information (credit card numbers, passwords, personal details, data etc.)
To prove a point, to prove it can be done, to prove ones skill or for revenge purposes
To cripple a computer or network

Unfortunately it's all about money, nothing else.
Everybody wants to keep their personal information safe, so people spend a lot of money to protect themselves from hacker attacks.
Also there is a viewpoint that antivirus companies create viruses to increase sales of their products.

Hi @Kip

It is because of nature of people and the curiosity. This curiosity can be because of

1) Willingness to prove self.

2) Money and blackmailing for economic and other benefits

3) International cross border tension and affected peoples.

4) With intention to learn new things.

You can't help these people who hack others. It is totally waste of time to blame things in this world. It is wise to keep yourself safe.

To help answer your question, we need to establish that their are different types of viruses, the type of virus helps us identify the motives of the people who write the codes. Now with that said; a malware virus is the kind that is designed with intent of a full system failure and boot loop with intent on harming your hardware and not just your data. Driver signing is one way they can shut down your hardware. In my opinion those who have the most to gain in this situation are the people who fix computers and the people who build computers. A data collection virus typically wont want you to know it is on your computer so it can steal as much data as possible; such as user passwords and credit card numbers that are stored in your system cache memory. Some data collection viruses rely on key logging which collects more personal information about the user by recording their keyboard input sequences; such as messages to co workers or friends. A data collection virus typically comes in the form of a trojan horse; like a program that does something but with those permissions it has it exploits to reroute data to a collection server in a background process while doing what it claims it does most pretend to be anti-virus but they come in the form of video players and media players also. The people in the data collection schemes they have something personally invested in the data, or the exchange of data. It is more of a criminal type virus as to where the malware is so people will buy new computers and sell their old ones that are outdated for cheap to someone who can fix it and sell it to someone.

There's many different types of virus's and each have different but specific purposes and and like almost everything else the majority of them ultimately have the same common goal, MONEY. There are some that are created from boredom or curiosity to see if they can get away with it. Similar to a child, when you tell them not to do something, instead of listening they take it as a as a challenge and cannot resist the urge to push the limits.

yes so they can get all your personal info like for instance your credit cards and your id so they can hack into your computer and such so they can steal your indenty and such and then once they get what they are after they infect and destory your pc by virus so they can hide and erase their tracks from ever being in your computer and they get their kicks and joys out of it and they are so such sick and dispectble and horble people for doing so i myself know how you feel on this matter cause it has happen to me before
