In 1988, the first ever PC virus, Morris Worm was distributed via the internet and infected about 6,000 computers. Morris Worm was created by Robert Tappan Morris, a student of Cornell University and launched from MIT. Morris was later convicted in the U.S. under the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Computer viruses are indeed very dangerous and, this can really harm any computer it gets hold on. I'm just hearing about some of the ones you mentioned here and, It's important to guide our computers against these worms. Thanks for sharing this with the bizsugar community.
