I've read a story once.
So, people have received a signal from space and it turned out that the signal was some kind of scheme or something, and when they built that thing, it captured the Earth and started sending the same signal to space. Looked like something like a self-replicating virus in space.
Does anyone remember who is the author of this novel? I'm not quite sure about details but the main idea was about virus replicating through information transimission.
It may be authored by Isaac Asimov, but I can't find such a story from him.
