Astoundingly, there have been criminal prosecutions and convictions of the author(s) of malicious programs, all of which are described below: I hope that when people read this essay and become aware of both the malicious design and great harm caused by computer viruses and worms, readers will urge their legislators:
I have not cited a source for each fact mentioned in this essay,because most of these facts have been reported at many different sources,and are well known to computer experts who are familiar with viruses and worms.
(I put "experiment" in quotation marks, because the design and releaseor a computer virus or worm is a crime, a legitimate scientific experiment.)
Other examples of for writing or releasing malicious programs are contained in my essayon

I am of old and young, of the foolish as much as the wise,
Regardless of others, ever regardful of others,
Maternal as well as paternal, a child as well as a man,
Stuff'd with the stuff that is coarse and stuff'd with the stuff
that is fine,
One of the Nation of many nations, the smallest the same and the
largest the same,
A Southerner soon as a Northerner, a planter nonchalant and
hospitable down by the Oconee I live,
A Yankee bound my own way ready for trade, my joints the limberest
joints on earth and the sternest joints on earth,
A Kentuckian walking the vale of the Elkhorn in my deer-skin
leggings, a Louisianian or Georgian,
A boatman over lakes or bays or along coasts, a Hoosier, Badger, Buckeye;
At home on Kanadian snow-shoes or up in the bush, or with fishermen
At home in the fleet of ice-boats, sailing with the rest and tacking,
At home on the hills of Vermont or in the woods of Maine, or the
Comrade of Californians, comrade of free North-Westerners, (loving
their big proportions,)
Comrade of raftsmen and coalmen, comrade of all who shake hands
and welcome to drink and meat,
A learner with the simplest, a teacher of the thoughtfullest,
A novice beginning yet experient of myriads of seasons,
Of every hue and caste am I, of every rank and religion,
A farmer, mechanic, artist, gentleman, sailor, quaker,
Prisoner, fancy-man, rowdy, lawyer, physician, priest.
Joe stands in "horsey fashion," Fred Henry is an "animal which controls," and Malcolm has a "jauntymuseau." In fact, the entire family has an "animal pride." Lawrence describes the brothers in terms of horses apparently to emphasize the importance of...

You may not want to appreciate viruses – the physical or the software kind – but they do teach us lessons and keep us on our toes. Take this day to dedicate it to protecting against viruses, malware, spyware, trojans, etc. – from vaccinations for ourselves to anti-virus software upgrades for our technology – don’t forget to put them on the smart phones and tablets too!

The only reason that I mention the MBDF virus inthis essay is that it is one of a very few cases in which the authorand distributors of a malicious program were arrestedand punished for their crime.
The MBDF virus was first discovered in the wild by a professor of mathematicsin Wales, who sent it to John Norstad, the author of a now-discontinuedanti-virus program for the Macintosh.
Less the reminders of properties told my words,
And more the reminders they of life untold, and of freedom and extrication,
And make short account of neuters and geldings, and favor men and
women fully equipt,
And beat the gong of revolt, and stop with fugitives and them that
plot and conspire.
Trippers and askers surround me,
People I meet, the effect upon me of my early life or the ward and
city I live in, or the nation,
The latest dates, discoveries, inventions, societies, authors old and new,
My dinner, dress, associates, looks, compliments, dues,
The real or fancied indifference of some man or woman I love,
The sickness of one of my folks or of myself, or ill-doing or loss
or lack of money, or depressions or exaltations,
Battles, the horrors of fratricidal war, the fever of doubtful news,
the fitful events;
These come to me days and nights and go from me again,
But they are not the Me myself.
