You can buy a lot of weird sh*t on the internet nowadays, and that’s without even heading over to the Dark web.
From haunted dolls on eBay to toast with the Virgin Mary burned onto it, there’s a never-ending slew of weird, wonderful and downright scary things you can buy online.
One of the scariest things that’s currently up for sale is a Samsung NC10 netbook, selling for the eye-watering price of $620,000.
So, what makes this Samsung netbook so special? Well, it’s infested with the world’s most dangerous malware, and comes with the ability to take down any computers linked to any network is might be connected to.
It truly is the Annabelle of the tech world, so if you’re thinking about forking out for it, please keep it in a glass case and get a priest in, because this is a nasty piece of work.
It’s being dubbed the “most dangerous laptop in the world,” and with the auction price still rising, it looks like there’s no shortage of people willing to part with their cash to own the demonic thing.
The netbook is being auctioned off as a piece of art, named The Persistence of Chaos [via Gamereactor], and with a name like that it’s definitely giving off some serious Book of Revelation/apocalypse vibes.
Included on the netbook are six of the most expensive pieces of malware ever created, with a combined total of a huge $95 billion.
The ILOVEYOU virus, the WannaCry ransomware, the DarkTequila malware, the MyDoom and SoBig worms, and the BlackEnergy rootkit are just a few of the big-name disasters waiting to happen for whoever wins the auction.
Seller Guo O Dong will airgap the netbook before sending it out to the unlucky winner of the auction, in the hopes of preventing any doom being unleashed upon the world. This will remove any network interfaces from the machine.
The auction page says: “Upon the conclusion of this auction and before the artwork is shipped, the computer’s internet capabilities and available ports will be functionally disabled.”
Those bidding have to agree that they’re “purchasing this work as a piece of art or for academic reasons, and have no intention of disseminating any malware.”
Because a promise is a promise, right?
If this is how the world ends, I’m going to be seriously p*ssed.
