    I think this article (posted on the Nanog list) should be the final
    nail in the coffin on "defensive worms".

    http://www.nwfusion.com/news/2003/0819navy.html

    Reportedly 3/4s of the Navy Marines Corps Internet was unusable
    because of the "beneficial" Welchia (patching RPC) worm. Network
    operations is at least partially outsourced to EDS, but the article
    doesn't state who is responsible for administering the machines.
