are malwares made only in C++ ?

I'have lately become more curious about how malwares are developed and i made several but for sure it was just for interest and they wheren't really dangerous anyway lol i already know that most famous malwares are known to be developed in C++ because of several reasons (i guess most malware coders know) but i wanna know if we can actually make malwares with languages like go or even ruby ? did anyone tried that ? that's my first question and if yes would it reduce the rate of detection ? given the fact that they are not common for this purpose..

Malware is software which is coded to behave maliciously. If your code can run on the target system you are attempting to infect, it does not matter what language they are coded in. You can even write malware in bash. As for your second question, try looking into how malware detection works. Generally the language used has little to no effect on how detectable the malware is. https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/229653/is-malware-programmed-in-high-level-language-will-be-more-detected-than-malware
