The FBI has identified a teenager as the author of a damaging virus-like
infection unleashed on the Internet and plans to arrest him early Friday, a
U.S. official confirmed Thursday.
The 18-year-old, whose name and hometown was not immediately available, was
accused of writing one version of the damaging "Blaster" infection, which
spread quickly across the Internet weeks ago, the official said, speaking
on condition of anonymity.
