German police claims to have arrested Sasser viruswriter

Posted on Saturday, May 08 2004 @ 13:06:29 CEST by


The German police has arrested an 18 year old man, who is suspected of creating the Sasser computervirus. According to the Lower Saxony police the man was arrested on Friday.
Sasser, a tenacious computer worm, is expected to infect millions of machines before it runs its course.

Since appearing at the weekend, it has wreaked havoc on personal computers running on the ubiquitous Microsoft Windows 2000, NT and XP operating systems, but is expected to slow down as computer users download anti-virus patches.

Home users, corporations, and government agencies throughout Europe, North America and Asia have been hit. Once infected, the vulnerable PC reboots without warning as the compact programme hunts for more machines to infiltrate.

Sasser could mutate by combining with the two-month-old Netsky worm, making it a launching pad for further Web attacks that would put it on par with Blaster, the destructive worm that appeared last year and used infected computers to attack Microsoft Corp.'s Web site.
