Ah, those worms
Remember the Sasser worm
? It didn't wreak that much havoc on federal systems
last year, but it did impact many computers. And the virus/worm issue seems to have calmed down significantly. And maybe feds and others are more security conscience
. Today, however, we just seem to have patch-mania to deal with.
Anyway... a German court has convinced the creator of the worm... although he gets a suspended sentence of one year and nine months.
