Melissa virus author jailed

Recommended Posts

I whole heartedly agree with you SC, they should just take him outback and shoot the S.O.B. 20 months (That's right, months) is not nearly long enough.

Nah, id put him to work in fixing all the bugs in windows while he's in jail. Only when he's done he can go free.

Life sentence baby! And with torture! yeah!

Jesus, he's just a geek for God's sake. It's not as if he killed or raped anyone.

Tac seems to have the right idea here.

A death sentence is going easy on him. MAKE HIM SUFFER!

Paddy: You dont know what viruses, properly made can do- they can open your system up to hackers, to steal your money, they can make your system part of a DDOS attack, or other horrific things.

THEY COULD EVEN INVALIDATE YOUR BCM SAVE GAMES!!!

I agree he deserves alot more than what he got I was working as network admin at the time the Melissa hit and I was in charge of the anti-virus for a large site, surfice to say that I had an extremely busy week but at least I am glad to say that no major harm was done. But I have never had anything consume so much time in my life in one week(besides BC of course) and it caused some serious hastles for our IT dept...

Well this geek only made a stupid VBS/macro virus, as it seems it's more and more popular. VBS/macro autoextecution in Word or Outlook Express makes it very easy to play with your computer, and spread quickly viruses.

We had that "Mafiaboy" guy over here that disrupted the amazon, ebay and cnn websites (I think) for a few hours, causing a few million dollars in damage. He only used a program made for that purpose by REAL hackers and such.

Real viruses are rare nowadays.

True, but his virus sure raped a lot of computers.

I'm positive Paddy was commenting on the kill/torture talk that was going on. However joking it was that (kill/torture/life sentence) is a bit harsh.

On the other hand 20 months does seem a little light.

Hmmm 20 months. Appropriate? I am not sure. But I sure hope he doesn't get his hands on a computer in jail.
