A tapeworm is a type of invasive computer program, like a virus, which can delete or alter computerized data when entered into a system. In 2045, Lee Kelso released a number of computer tapeworms and viruses into GlobalNews's databanks, in order to create conflicting information about a rumored extraterrestrial visitation, and to delete the more inflammatory stories. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)
