WebTV trojan creater sentenced to six months jail

Posted on Wednesday, March 16 2005 @ 20:23:38 CET by


A trojan creator who infected WebTV users in 2002 has been sentenced six months in prison. The trojan plagued emergency services with phone calls.

He e-mailed the trojan to users, saying it were a program to change colours on their TV displays.
However, the attached file altered the settings on the user's WebTV box making it dial 911 next time it attempted to connect to the internet.

Approximately 20 users are said to have received the email, and 10 reported that the local police either telephoned or visited their home in response to the emergency call.
