... I hope these references help. I would suggest you read them if you have further questions, and let's get the nomenclature on this consistent. Nice list, Gene. I'd also add the following: Fred Cohen, "Computer Viruses", 1985 USC doctoral thesis (available from the author, CS Dept., U of Cincinnati). Cohen attributes the term "virus" to Len Adleman of RSA (etc.) fame. Fred Cohen, "Computer Viruses--Theory and Experiments", Computers & Security, vol. 6, 1987, Elsevier/North-Holland, pp. 22-35. Ken Thompson, "Reflections on Trusting Trust", Turing Award Lecture, CACM, August 1984. The famous "compiler virus". Fred Cohen, "A Cryptographic Checksum for Integrity Protection", Computers & Security, vol. 6, 1987, Elsevier/North-Holland, pp. 505-510. Maria M. Pozzo and Terence E. Gray, "An Approach to Containing Computer Viruses", Computers & Security, vol. 6, 1987, Elsevier/North-Holland, pp. 321-331. I haven't read this one, but it sounds interesting: B. Landreth, "Out of the Inner Circle: A Hacker's Guide to Computer Security", Microsoft Press, Bellevue WA 1985.
