    Hello,

    I came across a brief history of computer viruses with a flow diagram from the first virus all the way up to date. First worm etc.
    It was only a month or two ago i saw it.

    Has anyone else come across it?
    I either found out about it on here or some security company sent me it in their news letter.

    Googling has proved fruitless but may be my google foo is off tonight.

    any one remember it or have one?

    thanks for your time

    Martin

    Then I can stop looking for that other one that I saw a while ago as I still haven't found it.
