The Worm at the Core

The worm was created by Morris simply to see if it could be done, and was released from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the hope of suggesting that its creator studied there, instead of Cornell. ( Morris would later become a tenured professor at MIT in 2006.) Morris, the creator of the worm, was the son of Robert Morris, a cryptographer who, at the time, was working for the NSA.
