In Lua scripting for ROBLOX, a virus is a malicious script that copies itself to other instances, and may also interfere with the functioning of the place that it is in. Most viruses are obtained by grabbing a free model either rigged by an attacker, or infected with a virus from another object. Lua scripts do not affect the actual computer's operating system, therefore the computer would be safe from any real damage. The ROBLOX game/place, however, would be infected, causing damage to the place, usually by renaming instances. A virus script is usually named "Good luck removing this", "WOMP WOMP INFECTED" or "OH SNAP YOU GOT INFECTED XD XD XD".
