Hi.

I would like to have an RFC written about the Internet "Virus" event to
document exactly what actually happened. Virus is in quotes since this
was technically a Worm. The RFC should describe features were used, what
tricks were used, and how it worked. Also how it was stopped, and what
lessons were learned. All the history, the story of its spread and its
defeat. This RFC should include all the gory details. This RFC can then
be the basis for summary articles in magazines and journals. I think that
this RFC should have many authors, as many people contributed to the efforts
to understand and stop this program.
