ABSTRACT
This paper tells about the self replicating program called virus .computer virus are spread across open networks such as internet ,causes billions of dollar worth of damage in short amount of time .due to this self replicated program there will be great loss in many important application. Viruses enter your system via e-mail, downloads, infected floppy disks, or (occasionally) hacking. Thousands of viruses exist, but few are found "in the wild" (roaming, unchecked, across networks) because most known viruses are laboratory-made, never released variations of common "wild" viruses. The idea of VIRUSES started with the possibility of writing self-replication software. John Von Neumann put this idea forward in 1950. This was introduced in AT&T Labs as a recreational game. Each would write the codes destroy other programmers’ code and the winner would be person left with the more living code. - The Brain virus plague started in 1986. It was the first IBM PC computer virus and was able to infect 360KB diskettes, thus spreading worldwide very fast.

It was the first IBM PC computer virus and was able to infect 360KB diskettes, thus spreading worldwide very fast. The virus managed to infect a lot of computers simply because people were unprepared for computer viruses. The Brain was developed in Pakistan by two brothers: Basit and Amjad Farooq Alvi. Both worked as software vendors, and their goal was to learn about the degree of piracy in their country, but they were unaware ...
