In computer simulations, Weaver found that a Warhol worm--starting with a list of 10,000 potentially vulnerable computers, making 100 scans per second, and requiring 1 second to infect
a computer--could spread to 1 million computers in considerably less than 15 minutes, even as little as 8 minutes.
