Worms Of The Future: Trying To Exorcise The Worst
by Nicolas Stampf - Tuesday, 18 November 2003.
This is a research paper on the security (or lack of) within computer systems and ways of improvement with respect to mobile and hostile code such as worms.

This paper should be regarded as just that: a source for further research on the topic and, in the end, potential security improvement. It can be viewed as an encouragement for Chief Information Officers to reinforce their security through review of their security policy and quicker patching of their systems.

More precisely, the paper tries to look at what could result from applying traditional information security considerations (confidentiality, integrity and availability applied to processing, storage and transport) to the worm paradigm.
