    I don't think that's too much as the maximum sentence. But I doubt he will get the maximum sentence. I am hoping he gets a large fine, like $100,000, which he will have to work off his tremendous ass to pay off.

    The aim is to set the example whereby kids know that messing around creating viruses and variants is NOT a prank, it can seriously cause damage, data loss and downtime for businesses and individuals.

    Yes, BUT, the Blaster virus intruded peoples computers did it not? Thus, making him responsible for those infected with Blaster "B" as I call it,

    I have to disagree with you on that. I think microsoft should be punished for all this as stupid as that sounds I think most people here can agree.

    Shocking AMDMan2003 - backing up M$

    1. I don't think that 10 years is a harsh enough punishment - He should be made to work on the helpdesk!!

    2. Jail time will only teach him to be a better criminal.

    3. He should be made to pay the US $250,000 off for the rest of his life, ie take it out of his income, that way the punishment will be ongoing - much more of a deterent.

    One reason I'm being harsh is that particular virus knocked out our main patient database - thus the potentional was there for it to be life threatening.

    Note: all our machines on our network were patches and virus free, it was the dialup users of our network who caused quiet severe problems - we had to block all incoming lines until the problem was rectified.
