The earliest viruses were pieces of software that were embedded in popular applications, such as a game or word processor. When you loaded the program onto your computer, the virus would load as well. The virus would then scan the disk for other programs it could infect. If you gave an infected floppy disk to someone else or posted an infected program on an electronic bulletin board, other people's systems would easily become infected.
