To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Files mentioning the Code Red worm, detected on the internet on or about July 15, 2001. Although the worm had been released on July 13, the largest group of infected computers was seen on July 19, 2001. On this day, the number of infected hosts reached 359,000.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

From: Emma Best

I am appealing these rejections in their entirety, as the Bureau has no basis to claim they cannot confirm or deny their interest in decades old non-national security cases in which there are no pending proceedings, and in which they have already acknowledged their interest in several cases, such as the code red worm.
