The Quantum Theif Wiki

Wildcode is the name used by the inhabitants of Sirr for the ubiquitous rogue nanotech that pervades the vast majority of Earth's surface. Wildcode roams the Wildcode desert - a large area surrounding Sirr, and visited by the Mutalibun who hunt for gogols to provide to the Sobornost. Any person not protected by Seals is vulnerable to wildcode infection, which will result in rapid death or transformation as the nanomachines consume and/or remake their body.

Wildcode was first unleashed during the Collapse, and appears to have been an unintended by-product of Jean le Flambeur's efforts to collapse Earth's quantum economy.
