Farooq Alvi Brothers

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 the virus to protect their work from piracy by supposedly targeting copyright infringers only. They were reportedly helped by Irfan Shahid from Lahore. The brothers lived in Chah Miran, Lahore, Pakistan, and are still in business as internet service providers with their company, Brain Limited.
