Worm cripples New Brunswick government computers

Author: JT Smith

Reported at CBC: "The worm that has slowed the Internet to
a crawl has put New Brunswick's government computer
system out of business. Computer experts warn that the Nimda - which is
"admin" spelled backwards - might be the beginning of
more worms and viruses. The impact of Nimda on New Brunswick has shut down
such services as vehicle licence registration."
