Does anyone know how to start learning how to and or learn how to

It would be extremely difficult to write a firewall in Perl. You need to
get into the OS' network stack at a very low level, and that isn't easy
in Perl. A virus scanner basically just looks for known patterns in
files, but writing the scanner isn't the hard part: the hard part is
working out which patterns match viruses.
