Overview Edit

The 1986 Pakistani Brain virus was reportedly implanted in software packages as a warning or threat to those who copy software. It infected IBM PCs and compatibles and copied itself onto diskettes that were inserted into infected systems. The virus contained the message “Welcome to the dungeon. Beware of this VIRUS. Contact us for vaccination.” The message also included an address and phone number of the two brothers in Pakistan who originally distributed the software.
