Lol.. that's pretty funny. I read the cited article, and it read more like an editorial. The point it was trying to make was that even though the Coleco ADAM is relatively obscure, it had viruses, so security through obscurity is not good security. I don't know why that's relevant to the Mac article in Wikipedia.

I've never encountered an ADAM virus. I'm sure you could make one, but I don't know where he got his info.
