|Oneliner||First Virii 2009 Certification|
|Summary||Virii 2009 is an annual acknowledgment of the computer virus which has replicated the most, globally, for an annual year. The first Virii 2009 unique plaque, VIRII 2009 CONFICKER, is presented as a certified record of authenticity, framed for hanging on a wall in a secure location. Future certifications are to be only distributed as an annual unique plaque. It is entrusted to a collector to be stored or shown securely. The attached disc and samples contained on the disc are packed in a secure manner that only the artist, Jon Phillips, or his designated agents may discuss. Made for the Renegade Art Auction in Sonoma Sunday, September 29, 2009. I release all the assets linked on this page under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 license. The name Virii 2009 is Jon Phillips' trademark.|
