comment Why does the 'vi' command open 'vim' editor?
vim checks argv[0]. If that is vi, it runs in compatibility mode. See also sendmail and mailq and similar programs where functionality of the program can be switched by calling it a different name.

comment Is update.vbe a malicious code?
Please note that this is a dup of a question closed on Stack Overflow. The close reason there suggests that this is a 'general computing hardware and software' issue and might be appropriate for Super User. It is not an appropriate question on Programmers.SE (please see our help center for information about what topics we do accept on this Stack Exchange).

comment Is update.vbe a malicious code?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the maliciousness (or not) of a particular application rather than the process of software development.

comment Linux mv command moved data to an unknown location?
neat trick with mv *: mkdir zzz; mv * which will move all the contents of the current directory into the directory zzz. Just make sure you don't have any files that sort lexagraphically after zzz.

comment Auto answer “Y” to simple CLI command with DOS command
@maihabunash you get a complier and compile the code. One version of it on google code. It should be trivial to write a similar program in a scripting language present on the machine if you don't have a compiler.

You might want to check out the unix yes command (possibly getting the source and compiling it for dos).
