Insect V. Mollusk

Businesses running Windows 2000 computers all over the world, including the farm equipment maker Caterpillar, have been beset by a worm, which is malicious code that travels directly through internet connections, instead of e-mail, allowing Wired to construct this marvelous sentence:

"Caterpillar worked Tuesday to clean up effects from the worm"

It makes the business and IT world seem like some strange biosphere. Funny thing is, as ironic as Wired is, I don't think they meant it as a joke, judging from the context.
