Symantec releases worm outbreak simulator

This is just too cool. You can download and run this on your own Windows system, but although the documentation says you can tinker with the security policies, worm characteristics and other simulation variables, the software doesn't seem to allow you to do this. I guess Symantec doesn't want to give undue advantage to it's competitors (or the worm creators), which I suppose is understandable. Still, if we could at least edit the network security policies and such, this would be a great tool to show your users & management the importance of good security controls!
