Business worms?

Business worms?

Antivirus vendor Kaspersky offers a theory that one of the worms that attacked the Internet on August 16, 2005, is a new class of Internet worm. According to Kaspersky, the Bozori worm is specifically designed to infiltrate corporations via unprotected laptop then explode onto unprotected desktops inside the corporate firewall. Kaspersky concludes that we may in a new era where these new "business worms" explode within corporations like CNN and ABC News, but do little damage on home desktop computers.
