There were worst. The "ILoveYou" worm in 2000 and the "Slammer" worm in 2003 were globally felt. Viruses and Worms have been around since 1994. The biggest "oops" one was the worm Lotus had encrypted in its software trying to protect itself from being pirated. It had also accidentally destroyed the data of legitimate owners as well because of flawed programming.
