Bernd Fix: The virus came in the mail

The computer virus comes by letter from East Frisia. This is the state of the art in 1987. In his student apartment in Heidelberg, Bernd Fix fumbles a diskette out of an envelope. He slides it into the drive on his computer.

At that point, the virus on the disk had already traveled over a thousand kilometers in the mail, taking a detour via fellow hackers in East Frisia and Vienna. It is still unclear who developed the virus. The program is one of the first computer viruses to spread freely. It later becomes known as the Vienna virus.
