Created in 1982 by a high school student who was 15 years old. He named Rich Skrenta.Viruses that he made, when it was intended for the Apple II computer system.

At that Skrenta no longer trusted by my garden. It was caused by the behavior that illegally distribute games and software, he often uses floppy disks to turn off the computer or to display the mocking words on the screen. Finally Skrenta also devised a method to do it without a floppy disk so that it is not suspected.
