10 computer facts you didn’t know

1. Creeper, the first Virus

It is scary to acquire viruses on your computer because chances are your files and safety could be compromised. Ever wondered where it all started?

It was in 1971 that the first-ever computer virus emerged. The creators intended to experiment and analyze how it could spread across the files and computer itself. When it did, the screen showed the message: “I’m the creeper, catch if you can!”

Once it successfully reaches one’s computer, it replicates itself and eats the remaining memory until the computer can no longer operate due to insufficient storage.
