John Robb:

"Hard self-replication makes exact copies of itself through an automated process, ad infinitum, and is something we will see much more of in biotech weapons/crimes in the future." (http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/globalguerrillas/2007/10/malware-warfare.html)

"these new combinatorial networks now form a complete cycle that connects innovation with substantial financial rewards. Secondly, this new network configuration now makes it possible to gain huge leverage through self-replication. Self propagating bot networks now number in the millions of computers (and growing) and the sophistication of the attacks these networks can power is quickly overwhelming any effective response."
