This laptop is kept in isolation and air-gapped which means the virus can not escape anywhere unless you connect it to Wi-Fi or attach a USB which is not going to end well because these viruses are known to create damage up to $100 billion worldwide.
Other viruses are BlackEnergy, ILOVEYOU, MyDoom, SoBig and DarkTequila.
Guo is an internet artist "whose work critiques modern day extremely online culture", the auction site, organised by cybersecurity group Deep Instinct, said. It is being sold at a private auction, although any one who wishes to buy the laptop can place a bid online. It is a piece of art that has been named The Persistence of Chaos by an Internet artist Guo O Dong.

SoBig SoBig was a worm and trojan that circulated through emails as viral spam.
