I find your "explanation" why this author of a virus should be treated

security scene to support him.
there is one other thing...
he is correct when he says that Microsoft will say it's completely the
worm writer's fault. BUT i think Microsoft should be punished too for
having so many security holes. they had to patch it faster.
who's fault is it really when you buy a door, you lock it, but a burglar
finds a way to easily open it, comes in and tells you...
just my 2 cents
aka Rik Bobbaers
ps. i don't agree with the worm writers, but just want to say it's not
just his fault, microsoft has to take it's responsability too
