by Michael J. Ackerman, Ph.D.
Hardly a day goes by that we don?t find ourselves reading or talking about computer security. This is not a new topic. Computer viruses have been with us for more than 16 years. I discussed the topic as an analogy to clinical disease viruses in this column back in 1988 (Ackerman, MJ. A New Category of Disease: Computer ?Virus.? Journal of Medical Practice Management 1988; Vol.4#1: 39-40). Since then the etiology of computer viruses has gotten much more complex and sophisticated but so has our ability to recognize them and protect our computers from them.
