The virus he designed and unleashed onto unsuspecting victims netted him credit card and banking details on the infected systems. Had authorities not caught on and stopped him when they did, the malicious software had the potential to infect up to 74,000 PCs worldwide.

Sentencing submissions will be heard this coming September 24th.
