On January 30, 1982, Richard Skrenta of Pittsburgh, PA wrote the first computer virus code. It was 400 lines long and infected Apple II machines. He named it “Elk Cloner”. That’s a shame. He could have named it Elk Boner and become a demigod to the Dark Web denizens. Also, if you ever get a computer virus, you can use Richard Skrenta’s name in vain. He started this crap.
