    Sorry, crazed mental imagery.
    Hah.. you find that funny? I called out an entire LUG here once. They took shots at my server (because it was hosting my schools lug (a favour for the guy running the LUG)), so I challenged them either to a linux test and they said no way... then I went and called them out.. they all cowered in the room like little babies. It woulda been one nerd beating 20 nerds

    However, more than likely, when this calms down the kid will be approached and hired to do development/security work and will end up making a boat load of cash. I know of serveral instances where this has happened.

    Actually the guy that wrote the Anna Kournikova worm got offered a job the same day he turned himself in (by the local government fcs, it was a drag and drop/point and click worm, no knowledge required).
    He got feind with 180 hours of community service or something.

    I am glad the (supposed) writer got caught, perhaps that will disencourage some of the other wannabees out there.
    However I think they will have a way harder time catching the one (or group) responsible for the Sobig.F who had other purposes then simple causing trouble (from what I have read the downloads that got prevented were supposed to make victim boxen into some sort of open relay for spam senders. KaChing).

    Good catch but remember that there are people with serious criminal intent out there also, not just imature people, disgruntled employees etc..

    From what i understand this is just some guy who took the original and slightly modified it. Just a lamer copycat , am i misunderstanding?

    This is a correct statement.
    The group that discovered the bug was very discreet once they released their advisory (when MS released the patch).
    The blaster was merely a copy and paste with slight modifications like you said. That is why I think the person responsible should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. The group that discovered the bug acted responsible, the person that released the worm acted like a retard.

    The culprit has been identified as Jeffrey Lee Parson, aka "teekid". He did admit to modifying the original Blaster code and creating several sub-versions.

    Here is the original article as well as a picture of the dude.... By the way, he is 6'4 and 320 pounds
