Sentencing Posted by Mikko @ 12:06 GMT

This is a post from our blog in May 2007:


Yesterday, three people were sentenced for writing the above malware (it's a variant of the Vanbot family) and other attacks — including some DDoS action.

The sentences were: 45 days jail, 40 days jail, and 0 days jail, respectively. The sentences were probationary, so nobody actually went to jail. In addition, some fines were written.

All the three convicted were underage.
