   Get a copy of the virus and write a disinfectant/prophylactic program in
Ada.  That's the way to get good publicity.  (Seriously, I used to be
involved in antiviral efforts.  You have to be well trusted to get sent
copies by other virus-haters, but once you get them, upgrading virus
checkers usually isn't a big problem.)
