I have the following information from public and private sources:

1. The source of the worm was Cornell - sendmail logs indicate
	worm testing there late last month.

2. The perpetrator is one Robert Morse, Jr., a CS graduate student there.

3. His father is apparently head of the National Computer Security Center,
	the NSA's public effort in computer security.

Good Night, and have a Pleasant Tomorrow.
