Antivirus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. The Creeper virus was eventually deleted by a program created by Ray Tomlinson and known as “The Reaper”. Reaper was actually a virus itself specifically designed to remove the Creeper virus. The Creeper virus was followed by several other viruses. The first known that appeared “in the wild” was “Elk Cloner”, in 1981, which infected Apple II computers. In 1983, the term “computer virus” was coined by Fred Cohen in one of the first ever published academic papers on computer viruses.
The first IBM PC compatible “in the wild” computer virus, and one of the first real widespread infections, was “Brain” in 1986. From then, the number of viruses has grown exponentially. Before internet connectivity was widespread, computer viruses were typically spread by infected floppy disks. Antivirus software came into use, but was updated relatively infrequently. During this time, virus checkers essentially had to check executable files and the boot sectors of floppy disks and hard disks. However, as internet usage became common, viruses began to spread online. There are competing claims for the innovator of the first antivirus product.
