comment What are unique aspects of a software Lifecycle of an attack/tool on a software vulnerability?
@AviD I think I see. It seems to me that the life-cycle for developing a thorough, well-engineered piece of software is not dependent on it being a virus or not. However, if the exploit is time sensitive (such as a zero day attack), then life-cycles be damned, it gets put into production as soon as it's working.

We have not had a formal meeting yet to discuss goals or possible avenues of breaching security, so I cannot say what type of code we would be developing (or if we would use existing software/technology to meet our goals). I am still interested to learn what types of formal techniques there are to take advantage of a compromised system, like creating backdoors, imitating users, infecting the computer with a virus, etc. I suppose that type of question may be more suited for IT Security

@AviD thanks, I think I got some excellent replies here in regard to the fact that development life-cycles for invasive software are not inherently different. I would like to learn more about the goals or options of invasive software once security is breached, like infecting the computer with a virus, creating a backdoor, or imitating a user to obtain data.

Dang, four good answers already. It's going to be hard to pick just one.
