Viruses and Trends

Gene Spafford

Sep 01, 1995


This presentation was in two parts. Part one was about the new Microsoft Word virus. This is well-documented via the resource page at FIRST.
The second part of the talk dealt with emerging trends in computer crime, release of the new Computer Crime book by O'Reilly, and some comments on WWW security in general. The changing nature of computer crime from exploration and prank to real economic crime was discussed, as was (some) the changing nature of the "computer underground."

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
