>From what I have seen this virus/phage sounds familiar. I believe
that there is a "recent" doctoral thesis from MIT that describes
this. This thesis included an implementation that was unleashed
in a test environment. This is 2nd hand information and I have
not seen the thesis (in fact it was not clear to me at the time
if it would be publicly "published".) From the description given
to me it is not exactly like was was tested since it did not include
the sendmail injection mechanism and relied on another injection
mechanism.

There must have been some DNA exchange from somewhere.
