Mac Virus


Ok, this isn’t exactly a real Mac virus. But it’s a good way too prank your friends(or foes!). With the help of AppleScript you can instruct the Mac to perform several tasks. Although Applescript is generally used for boring stuff like sending bulk mails or doing something productive, it can also be extremely fun if you have a devious plan in mind!

Open AppleScript Editor.

Open AppleScript Editor

This is where you write the code.

Dialog Command

Mac will now display a dialog with the warning.


now type,

tell application "Finder"

end tell

Save as Application

Now change the logo of the application, or do whatever but get your nemesis to open the application and face your wrath!
