Got hooked on Kidd and LuEllen after reading Empress File. This is the first of 4 Kidd's series by John Camp aka John Sanford. Though technologies were as in 1989 vintage, the story (on corporate espionage, computer security, house breakins, jet fighter design, military complex ...) was just right for the general readers to enjoy the workings of computers hacker's then. - See more at: http://sccl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1321755016_the_fools_run#sthash.43icG3ae.dpuf

There are some viruses, more complicated than the straight-out bombs, that may change a system's programming in more subtle ways.

Our first virus was not subtle. It was a bomb, pure and simple. Forty-five days after being inserted in the Whitemark computer system (viruses can count), it would explode. Any Whitemark program containing a virus would be thoroughly and irretrievably jumbled. Nothing would come out of the company's computers but garbage. - See more at: http://sccl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1321755016_the_fools_run#sthash.43icG3ae.dpuf
