      %T "Managing Computer Viruses"

      Chapter one is a vague outline of the problem of computer viruses,
      interspersed with other, semi-related issues. There is a broad
      background and history, in chapter two, but the authors do not appear
      to have fully understood their own research, confusing, for example,
      the Xerox PARC worm with the game of core wars. There are basic
      frameworks presented from the works of other researchers, but these
      are given in a muddled structure. Chapter three spends a lot of time
      drawing analogies between computer and biological viruses, while
      simultaneously warning that you shouldn't do this. Protection against
      viruses, in chapter four, presents a generic security plan with a few
      details related to malware. An opinion survey of sorts is tendered in
      chapter five. Policy formation, in chapter six, is another section
      lifted from a general security text. Chapter seven is a precis of the
      book.

      Yes, the book is outdated, but it didn't have much to say in the first
      place.
