    Amjad Farooq Alvi Inventor of first PC Virus

    Basit Farooq Alvi along with his brother Amjad Farooq Alvi are known for having developed the Personal Computer virus known as (c)Brain.

    The virus is considered to be the first virus for the PC. At the time the brothers were developing medical software and intended for virus to protect their work from piracy by supposedly targeting copyright infringers only. They were reportedly helped by Muhammad Khaleeq from Sahiwal, Irfan Shahid & Rizwan Chand from Lahore. The brothers lived in Chah Miran, Lahore, Pakistan, and are still in business as internet service providers with their company, Brain Limited.
