Nobody can say for definite what the most dangerous computer virus is, but some of the most dangerous ones include Jerusalem , ILOVEYOU & some trojan horses. ILOVEYOU was actually a computer worm spread by anonymous emais called 'LOVE LETTER FOR YOU". Jerusalem was one of the first viruses, and trojan horses aren't really viruses, but malware in disguise of legitimate-looking softwares. They are still active today. Rogue security softwares are an example of the trojan horse malware.
