- Blaster Suspect Blasted By FBI


Theregister reports that the FBI is about to arrest an 18 year old in connection with the Blaster Worm virus. I find this very funny. The Blaster Worm itself is not a complex virus. Anyone with half a brain can code a virus of this type. Well, looks like this "unnamed 18 year-old" will be coding in paper and pencil for the next 30 years or so =)


The teen has already been questioned by investigators and put under surveillance, The Seattle Times, citing two U.S. Justice Department sources, reports. He is expected to be arrested later today and charged with releasing a variant of the original Blaster worm.


The 18 year-old suspect was reportedly seen by a witness testing his virus, which was based on Blaster-A, the ur-worm
