What is Fork Bomb
Fork Bomb is a program which harms a system by making it run out of memory. It forks processes infinitely to fill memory. Fork Bomb, a form of denial-of-service attack against a computer system, implements the fork operation (or equivalent functionality) whereby a running process can create another running process. A fork bomb is also known as a wabbit or rabbit virus. To incapacitate a system they rely on the (generally valid) assumption that the number of programs and processes which may execute simultaneously on a computer, has a limit.
A simple example of a fork bomb is the the infinite loop, which continuously repeats the same process in a system environment.
Once a successful fork bomb has been activated in a system it may not be possible to resume normal operation without rebooting the system as the only solution to a fork bomb is to destroy all instances of it.
