My Doom CyberVirus Tie


Professor Eugene Spafford and Mary Jo Maslin of the Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS) push the barriers of Computer Science collaboration to the next level. One of their recent endeavors with Infectious Awareables takes the field of Information Assurance and Security to clothing accessory design. Infectious Awareables, "the company that brought us the West Nile Virus tie, has developed a new tie depicting the world's first "My Doom CyberVirus" design. Similarly to human viruses, internet viruses and worms invade, spread, and occasionally overwhelm their hosts, causing anything from a headache to the dreaded Fatal Error. The world's first "My Doom CyberVirus" design could become your favorite anti-viral "solution," especially when matched with black or blue. The tie was designed in cooperation with Professor Eugene Spafford and Mary Jo Maslin."

Infectious Awareables is a company dedicated to the education and awareness of public health issues. Their sensible fashion designs are a humorous, creative approach to real public issues. A portion of Infectious Awareables profits is contributed to organizations dedicated to research, education or treatment of infectious diseases.
