he prolly said something like, "oh yea, well I am a bigger nerd then you all, I made the sasser worm" at a lan party or something... this is like all great murders, the person will eventually tell someone about it and get caught. Just my bet. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,119372,00.html
I saw this story a little while before I saw this thread.
Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if he even turned himself in, as I'm sure someone like him wouln't mind the reputation of the creator of one of the most wide-spread effective viruses in computer history.

Seriously? WOW. I haven't gotten Netsky, but I hear it can be pretty bad. Wow, two major viruses before he's out of school. I'm sure he has a long life filled with senseless hacking and making other people's lives miserable ahead of him
Hmm,..i don´t know. I´m from germany, too. and nerds over here think what he did wuz kool! I head sum people say they wanna take revenge for him and start new viruses, to blackmail him free from the Court!
Things like that have also good sites! because of guys like him i started using mozilla and linux...these haxors opened my eyes. Hopefully this poor guy did open sum company´s,too!

I feel so bad for the people of Germany.. or their reputations anyways. I can't help that whenever I picture a german, I picture a hax0r with a Hitler moustache shooting someone in the 4s5 or something, and I know it's wrong, but it's the image that I've gotten, even though know it's more pinpointed at hating Nazis, and Nazi supporters (We're studying the Holocaust in Social Studies, can you tell?)
Well, anyways, Dan, I bet your happy. That thing f***** your computer up! If I were you, I'd hope that he goes to jail for a good hunk of time, though I doubt he will: some company will probably bail him out and ask him to work for them

Yes, that's what I was thinking too Like in The Core, where that ultra-nerd guy is caught with computers, and he isn't supposed to have them, so instead of going to jail, he gets to work for the government That pisses me off big.
If companies hired more people like him then maybe they would be able to do their jobs properly and not make defective products.
I have no doubt that they try and make cracker-proof programs but they're obviously not trying hard enough if some kid can dodge round all the security barriers.
