So, who wrote Sobig? Posted by Mikko @ 13:55 GMT

The Doc
Someone sent us a very interesting document last night.

It's a 48-page technical study on who wrote the infamous Sobig worm which went around the world last year. The study is done by anonymous authors.

The study concludes that author of this worm is a Russian programmer and goes out all the way to name him. Now, we can't confirm this either way. This might as well be a campaign to make someone look bad.

In any case, we've just found out this file has now been posted publicly here and here. So you can have a look by yourself and make your own conclusions.
