In the year 2000, a different vlrus has once shook the world. With just a single email, the I Love You virus has spread drastically, crashing computers, deleting files, and causing about $10 billion of damage in a glimpse.

On May 4, 2000, people worldwide received emails with "ILOVEYOU" as the subject. The message read: "kindly check the attached LOVELETTER coming from me."



The victims then opened the text file. Unfortunately, it was "an executable program" that allowed the virus to take control of your computer. Its a type of a program that replicate itself and send copies of itself to all in the victim's email contacts.

The cycle went on, recipients continued to open the attachment and spread it further. Soon after, office email servers were clogged as thousands of love letters went back and forth.



"This wasn't something that people were used to as a concept, they didn't realize that email could be so dangerous," Michael Gazeley told CNN as he recounted his experiences when the virus broke out. Gazely is a part-owner of the information security firm, Network Box, located in HongKong.

It's worse than just a chain letter. The ILOVEYOU virus soon destroyed the victim's hard drive and delete numerous files.



On May 11, international media flew to the Philippines to cover the arrest of a 23-year old student who is said to have coded the ILOVEYOU virus.

Onel de Guzman face the journalists while they raised their question about how he was able to put up such a destructive program. His lawyer Rolando Quimbo claimed that de Guzman was not even aware of whether those acts alleged against him "were indeed done by him".


"So if you ask me whether or not he was aware of the consequences, I would say that he is not aware," Atty. Quimbo said.

No hard drive or files were confiscated from De Guzman's house during the arrest. Just some computer equipment, magazines, and accessories.


De Guzman was accused of the creation of "the first truly global computer virus." ILOVEYOU virus paralyzed businesses and government agencies all over the world. It has even infected the Pentagon and the British Parliament. The total damages were estimated up to $10 billion.
