/* browsing this file is no fun at all just type CHRISTMAS from cms */

*9 December 1987* CHRISTMA EXEC is released on BITNET. The program written in
the REXX scripting language common to IBM Mainframes of the day is a small
christmas card with a built in trojan horse. When executed it reads through the
address book and sends copies to all your friends. The trojan horse managed to
spread to the IBM internal network VNET through the BITNET-VNET gateway as
well, causing even more massive grief on that network. IBM develops the first
"mail scanner" code to look for and destroy the program on the VNET network.
