Apparently the gov finally caught up to one the hackers responsible for the baster worm attack a few months ago.

Jeffrey Lee Parson, the 19-year-old Hopkins High School senior was arrested in connection with last summer's massive "Blaster" computer worm outbreak. He plead guilty Wednesday to authoring and unleashing an early variant of the worm that infected scores of computers and tried to take down a Microsoft Web site.

Originally this dude pleased innocent (I would have) but when federal cyber crimes task force pressed on him I guess he kinda cracked. It was prolly a good decision because had he gone to trial, he could have faced 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 if found guilty.


Under a plea, Parson will serve at least 1 1/2 years but no more than three years and one month in federal prison.

Wow, that is crazy, how could a 19-year-old do that to Microsoft. That must have been one of those crazy computer genius'. That just goes to show you that anyone can basically do anything they want if they have the know-how.
