	Are steps being taken to address this?  If so, how do I make my
information available?

	I am told Dennis Ritchie once posed this at a conference:

	Proove, conclusively, the original C compiler - distributed in
	binary form - didn't contain an adapting, self-propagating,
	and self-concealing virus that has infected every executable
	compiled with that executable, including descendant compilers,
	/ad infinitum/. 

	Last I heard no one had done so.  I'd be happy to be prooved
