Creeper's message[edit]

Creeper also contained a message that loaded when a computer infected with Creeper was booted up. Creeper's message read: "I'm the CREEPER! try and stop me!" which was a boast at which it spread. The only way to close the message was to restart the computer. --User:SmartyPantsKid 16:01, 25 June 2013 (UTC)The Creeper virus was older than some of the viruses we have today so it wasn't as harmfull
