Hi! I am taking a security class in school and I was wondering if someone could help me answer this question

What was the first "non DOS" malware and what kind of a program is it?

Is it Elk Cloner I can't seem to find it in my textbook. If anyone could point me in the right direction i would appreciate it thanks =)

Hello ek192010,

I am not sure myself, and I am sure some of the other guys here might know.

This site had a nice summary which may help:



If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal...you become something else entirely. A legend, Mr. Wayne, a legend!

If I have helped you please consider donating to the Neuroscience Research Institute.
