Simon Edwards created a great blog post about this April 12, 2012. He started out with: "Once upon a time, frighteningly not that long ago, Ross M Greenberg wrote the first anti-virus software for the PC. It was called FluShot and it was written in 1982, thirty years ago this year. FluShot was a DOS program that required 10K RAM. Little information is available about it on the web, and what still exists appears to be largely in text files originally distributed over BBS." I recommend you read the full blog post, it's quite interesting really:
