Overview Edit

The Lehigh virus, discovered in 1987 at Lehigh University, attacked IBM PCs and compatibles. It infected PC operating systems and copied itself onto diskettes inserted into the machines. It was programmed to infect four disks and then to destroy the computer’s file system. It reportedly infected several hundred computers, many of which lost all the data on their disks.
