| was a different time when people believed 
| admirers were really reaching out to say "I 
| love you", personal firewalls were turned 
| off by default and executable attachments 
| weren't blocked at e-mail gateways.
| Those circumstances allowed the Love Letter 
| worm -- the first Visual Basic script worm 
| -- to infect more than 50 million computers 
| worldwide within a week, causing estimated 
| $5 billion to $8 billion in damages, 
| bringing down networks by maxing out their 
| ability to fire off e-mails and causing 
| painstaking disinfection of affected 
| machines.
