There's actually a faint possibility that the malware ecosystem
will eventually produce increasingly sophisticated self-propagating
malware, which could eventually take over large fractions of a
network in a single domain, and use the computational resources
of the compromised hosts to run increasingly sophisticated,
albeit likely still nefarious code.
