Ted Larkin designed a computer virus which would transfer funds from private banks into his personal account. He soon became rich and let his virus go on. It eventually found its way into the computers of the United States Air Force. From there, it got downloaded into Box, who was receiving information from the USAF. The virus took over the Box robot and flew back to the Air Force base in an attempt to transfer the only units it could locate; nuclear missiles. Madison was able to finally phase out and destroy the robot.

The virus apparently still existed in the USAF database as when a new piece of automated targetting hardware was interfaced to the computer system, the computer "transferred" some missile units to Ted Larkin personally.[1]
