Are you aware that year there is a very important birthday. We would have come across this little bugger some time in our computer's life.

YES that's right, the PC virus is now 20 years old. The first virus, Brain, infected computers via floppy disk, but was relatively harmless. Since tansmission was via floppy disk from computer to computer, infection with these types of virus, called Boot sector virus, would only reach a significant level months or even years after release.

It's amazing how virus have changed over the last 2 decades.
