The first ever computer virus was developed in 1986 by two Pakistani brothers in Lahore Pakistan. The first computer virus named “Brain” was designed by Amjad Farooq Alvi and Basit Farooq Alvi with the intention of detering the piracy of a software written by them. “Brain virus” was not destructive and used to test the replication attributes of DOS. Brain had the function to replicate itself within the disks inserted inside a brain hit computer. Both the genius brothers are entrepreneurs and are currently operating a company named “Brain Pvt Limited” that provides ISP, IPTV, Telephony and various other services to the potential customers.
