Date: Sat, 5 Nov 88 15:33:46 EST From: email@example.com (Douglas Comer) The ONLY thing that will discourage copy-cats is severe punishment for the author. There may be the possibility of criminal suits; since the virus reportedly left the country, the author violated U. S. export regulations (the binary contained a copy of crypt(), which is a DES-derived encryption algorithm). I sure hope that some organizations file some civil suits against the guy. - Bill
