A Mini-Documentary I created on “The Origins of The Computer Virus”

Hi Community!

(this has already been posted on r/hacking, needed to get mod permission to share this on here but hope you guys like it!)

I’ve recently started a documentary series on “The History of The Computer Virus” – I’ve just covered it’s origins on this video, do take a look!

The [r/hacking]( & [r/cybersecurity]( has been super supportive of my documentaries, so I thought I’d keep sharing.
