I to would like to have as much information as possible on the
Virus/Worm in order to better protect my site, and the sites my company
helps to maintain for the Government. My concern on publishing an RFC
is that it might inspire some bored Grad student or disgruntled
employee on how to write a better and/or more destructive virus/worm.

One suggestion is not to place this RFC in the "public" domain, but to
have some intity maintain it and only send it on request. Possible
checking out the 's credentials/identity of the requestor first!
