[Hardware360] The 25th Anniversary of Computer Malware

It was back in 1988 when the first computer virus spread throughout the internet, which back then was in it infancy and mainly used by the Government agencies, and Schools.
Robert Tappan Morris, then a graduate student at Cornell, wasn’t trying to “attack” other computers when he unleashed the first large scale malware attack from MIT, known thereafter as the Morris Worm, on the Internet, but it changed everything by showing the world just how easily a virus could spread from system to system.

While many saw it as a huge problem in the 1988 little damage was actually caused by the virus and it made it clear more internet security would be needed as the net grew.

The internet wasn’t really mainstream so the 99% dialed into BBS’s talked with our friends and shared software back before it was “pirating"
