Happy Birthday Brain!
first reported computer virus is celebrating its 20th birthday today!
here is a story from dr. alan solomon (drsolly) taken from the funsec list:
here’s “the doomsday virus”.
it was written a year or so after 1986, before i’d actually seen a virus,
after people had started talking about them, and before anyone had
published any kind of analysis.
it was intended for publication in personal computer world (i wrote a lot
of magazines in those days). the editor said he’d liked it and would have
run it, but was worried that it might give people ideas.
