PhD on Viruses Posted by Mikko @ 14:41 GMT

Jussi Parikka

There are surprisingly few people out there who have done their PhD thesis on computer viruses.

However, we just got one more. Mr. Jussi Parikka did his dissertation on his thesis titled "Digital Contagions. A Media Archeology of Computer Worms and Viruses" on Saturday at the University of Turku, Finland.

As we here at F-Secure have a fairly substantial collection of material and memorabilia from the early days of the computer virus problem, we lent some of this material to Mr. Parikka during his research phase. It's good to see the final outcome now.
