10 November 1983, births Computer Virus

Did you know that 26 years ago, exactly 10 November 1983, a computer virus was first publicly demonstrated by Fred Cohen?

Cohen is a graduate of the University of Southern California, who demonstrated a computer virus at a security seminar at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. He put the virus in a mainframe computer with the language of Unix, and control the system after that.

Cohen actually not the first to 'delivery' virus. Earlier in the year 1982, a 15-year boy named Rich Skrenta do the same. He managed to infect Apple II computer game with a floppy disk medium. (detikinet)
