Ubiquity, the online magazine of the Association for Computing Machinery, has an interesting article by M E Kabay on the underbelly of the digital world.

It provides a good, brief introduction to viruses, worms, trojans, sniffers, chipping, spyware, bugs, etc. Though most of us have encountered a few of these in the field, I doubt many non-computer geeks really understand the variety of threats out there.

Well written, well researched.
