>By Bernhard Warner, European Internet Correspondent
>LONDON (Reuters) - A fast-spreading computer worm has
>corrupted corporate computer networks and personal
>computers in an outbreak that could be more widespread
>and damaging than the Code Red infections, computer
>security experts said.
>Known as ``Nimda,'' the word ``admin'' spelled
>backwards, the worm first appeared in the United
>States on Tuesday, spread to Asia overnight and
>thousands of European businesses opened business
>Wednesday morning with infected computer systems.
>Internet security experts had warned of the potential

>(news - web sites) said there was no sign of a link to
>``There is no evidence at this time which links this

>Ashcroft said Nimda could prove ``heavier'' than the
>Code Red worm that caused an estimated $2.6 billion in
>clean-up costs after outbreaks in July and August.
>One victim was German electronics conglomerate Siemens
>AG (news - web sites). The worm infiltrated part of
>its computer network, a company spokesman said,
>forcing the firm to shut down some computer servers
>and its e-mail system for a few hours on Wednesday.
>As of 4:30 a.m. EDT, the firm had fortified the
>affected systems. ``No concrete damage was found,''
>the spokesman said, adding the disruption had no
>impact on business operations.
>The Nimda worm spreads by sending infected e-mails
>that carry an attachment labeled ``readme.exe.'' It
>also propagates by infiltrating unsecured Web sites
>and attaching itself to an unsuspecting computer
>user's Web browser, IT officials said.
>Its target is personal computers and Microsoft
>computer servers, making it a more malicious and
>versatile strain than earlier Internet threats,
>In Europe, more than 15,000 companies had been
>infected by Nimda, said Raimond Genes, vice president
>of sales and marketing for Trend Micro Inc, a security
>software firm. ``This one is really horrible,'' he
>said. ``It's a combined attack.''
>The affected companies, which he would not name, are
>located in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy
>and Switzerland, said Genes.
>Graham Cluley, senior technical consultant for Sophos
>Anti-Virus in Oxford, told Reuters on Wednesday he
>would not be surprised if hundreds of thousands of
>users had been affected.
>SON OF CODE RED?
>There is evidence that Nimda may be the offspring of
>Code Red, a worm that ran rampant on the Internet
>through the latter part of the summer attacking
>vulnerable computer servers.
>Genes said Trend Micro technicians dissected the Nimda
>worm and found the same computer codes that were used

>including the Code Red infestation from earlier in the
>``We think it's the same person or group who wrote the
>Code Red trojan,'' Genes said. He added a statement in

>Other security experts rejected the theory, saying

>It first appeared in the United States on Tuesday and

>Infections were reported in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan,

>The worm had not significantly slowed overall traffic
>on the Internet, although, like Code Red, some
>corporate networks were bogged down. One aspect of
>Nimda's versatility was its ability to modify Web
>sites to carry files that can spread via downloads,
>Unlike Code Red, the worm can infiltrate a corporate

>Japanese online magazine ``Scan Security Wire'' said

>Nimda exploits an already detected vulnerability in

>It has its own e-mail engine and will try to send

Subject: [CARPENTER] Tie a Purple Ribbon
Subject: purple ribbon I think this is a fabulous idea -------- And
certainly does make sense to me.
A movement has been started like that from Desert Storm. During Desert
Storm we tied yellow ribbons anywhere we could. Well, now the movement
is to tie purple ribbons the same way. This is for two reasons.
1. In remembrance of not only the firefighters, police officers,
paramedics who have died, but also for all who have died in this
2. Just as in the military, when a serviceman get injured, he is given
the Purple Heart. Well, our country has been injured to its core.
Please pass this on to everyone you know, and let's see purple ribbons
everywhere. Along with the flag of the United States of America.

I would like to thank everyone for your patience, your mature way in which
you have participated and conducted yourselves in this time set aside.
I am now closing the list to any more discussion about the incidents on the
East Coast. I am please to see how well everyone has conducted themselves,
and have appreciated some of the first person accounts that have been sent in.
Thank you all for being what you are! :)
May we all survive this with a deeper love for humanity, and a deeper
commitment that for which America stands.
I am seeking information on the family of Donald/Daniel Cooney (Donald on
one census and Daniel on another). Wife is Susan, children are: Mary A.,
Margaret, and Daniel Joseph. According to the census records I have seen,
Mary and her parents were born in Ireland (I think Co. Clare, possibly from
Ennistymon), Margaret shows as born in Ireland on the 1880 census and in
Iowa on the 1900 census, and Daniel Joseph was born in Ireland.
Mary Cooney married James O'Loughlin. Their children are: Dennis Joseph
(b. 10-10-1868), Thomas (b. Dec. 1870), Mary (b. abt. 1873), Michael P. (b.
Aug. 1874), Daniel (b. Jan. 1880) and Susan H. (b. Mar. 1885).
Dennis Joseph married Ida Mary Henley/Henely. Their children are: Kathryn
Ann, Marie Ann and Ida Mae Ann.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
