It's nearly #xmas, got any virus yet? Hopefully not. In 1987, a very early mass-email worm spread at xmas time whose most prominent feature was an ASCII art Christmas tree. It was one of the very first email worm to paralyse an entire network and it was the first sign that we should starting paying attention to email attachments. On December 9th. Christmas Tree made it onto the EARNet (European Academic Research Network), and from there to BITNET and finally spread to IBM's VNet electronic mail network by December 15th. In 1990, Christmas Tree resurfaced after being posted to Usenet. IBM was forced to shut down its 350,000-terminal network in order to disinfect the network. The worm was created by an unnamed student at the University of Clausthal in former West Germany.
