    The computer virus is a malicious program which can replicate itself at rapid speed. Viruses modify and harm the system resources such as CPU usage, software programs, user data files, hard disk, system software and boot sector records, etc.

    The first computer virus was CREEPER virus. The creeper virus was observed first in 1971 affecting and spreading over the ARPANET which is a generation of Internet in the decade of 1970. The Creeper virus program was written by Bob Thomas, from BBN Technologies. BBN Technologies is an American firm working in the field of research and development in the computers and IT.

    This question can have two answers, If we talk about virus which was created just for experiment(Based on an experimental self-replicating program) at BBN Technologies in 1971. It would be The Creeper virus which was first detected on ARPANET. Creeper used the ARPANET to infect DEC PDP-10 computers which was running the TENEX operating system.

    Now I name you the virus which was created in 1982, a program called "Elk Cloner" was the first personal computer virus outside the single computer or lab where it was created.
