    Pieter,

    Gobo is referring to this post:

    www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=2093

    Because of the fact, the complete source code is available for everyone, I disabled the URL provided by Gobo - for good reasons. Apart from the fact it's against our TOS, we do not encourage publishing malware source codes; they can - and will be used.

    scusi, Gobo. Your English is just OK, btw ;)

    regards.

    paul

    I am sorry you delete the link, I make the source avaliable so people can learn from it. In coming days I will add infection code for GNU/Linux and other BSD and UNIX systems. Please know that I NEVER compiled this worm outside of my secure network, if others do that then I feel sad, but it happens. I just hope to make the internet a safer place for people by making ISPs and hosts more responsibel (??) for there actions. I *never* cause harm or damage to anything, but there are always people who will.

    I like to add they call it scalper because Gobbles first make BSD exploit code because of the Indian Apache conection. They also make nose-job that affect open and net BSD too :)

    Gobo,

    I'm sure that's your intention.

    I have no reason to doubt your good intentions.

    As you know, they will. That's exactly the reason why I disabled the URL you provided.

    A noble and fine atttitude!

    Amen to that!

    regards,

    paul

    I know you have reasons to stop people seeing the code, and that I broke your rules, I am sorry about that. Anyway, I go to bed now , 3 days without sleep make me tired :)
