The bavarian police is on his traces (see F-Secure weblog). Some AV peoples suspect the (29a?) virus author 'Spooky' to be the author of the Sober worms and other viruses. By checking google, Spooky seems to be from Austria and now maybe living in Bavaria (Germany). He is male and maybe between 21 and 26 years old. If someone knows who he is in real life, tell it to the police and get the big recompense from Microsoft (and we will all thank you too). The hunting saison is now open EDIT: sorry, I just noticied that this is the wrong place to post. Maybe this thread should go in tne-forward or other subforum.
