The Morris Worm: Internet malware turns 25

On Wednesday, November 2, 1988 the Internet was still young, small and dominated by academics and engineers. It was all very collegial, and there wasn't much in the way of security work, even if the topic existed in theory.

Robert Tappan Morris, then a graduate student at Cornell, wasn't trying to "attack" other computers when he unleashed the first great incidence of malware, known thereafter as the Morris Worm, on the Internet. It changed everything.
