People usually spend a lot of money to keep malware and viruses off of their PCs, but a Memorial Day auction saw someone spend $1.345 million on one that’s infested with digital bugs.
The laptop, loaded with six types of malware that collectively have reportedly caused over $95 billion in damages, is actually a work of art, called The Persistence of Chaos. Designed by Guo O Dong, who describes himself as a “contemporary internet artist,” it was made in conjunction with cybersecurity company Deep Instinct, which provided the malware and ensured the work was created in a safe environment.
The laptop itself is a classic—a 2008 Samsung NC10-14GB 10.2-Inch Blue Netbook running Windows XP.
