en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimivirus

The mimivirus is the fourth-largest virus, preceded by the recently discovered Megavirus chilensis, Pandoravirus and Pithovirus.Mimivirus has a capsid diameter of 400 nm.Protein filaments measuring 100 nm project from the surface of the capsid, bringing the total length of the virus up to 600 nm.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megavirus

The Megavirus chilensis genome is a linear, double-stranded molecule of DNA with 1,259,197 base pairs in length. This makes it the second largest viral genome deciphered so far (after Pandoraviridae), outstripping the next-largest virus genome of Mamavirus by 67.5 kb. Prior validation of its transcriptome, it is predicted to encode 1,120 ...

via BBC. The virus was created by two Filipino programers, Reonel Ramones and Onel de Guzman. What it did was use social engineering to get people to click on the attachment; in this case, a love confession.The attachment was actually a script that poses as a TXT file, due to Windows at the time hiding the actual extension of the file.
