which was the first internet virus?
Creeper was an experimental computer program written by Bob Thomas at BBN in 1971.Reaper was a similar program created by Ray Tomlinson to move across the ARPANET and delete the self-replicating Creeper.
The Creeper virus was first detected on ARPANET, the forerunner of the Internet, in the early 1970s. Creeper was an experimental self-replicating program written by Bob Thomas at BBN Technologies in 1971. Creeper used the ARPANET to infect DEC PDP-10 computers running the TENEX operating system. Creeper gained access via the ARPANET and copied itself to the remote system where the message, "I'm the creeper, catch me if you can!" was displayed.
Well, the first virus to corrupt our system...
Great coding for making the system hang on for a some time... Thus, demolishing the work running currently...
All The Best!
