saw a link earlier about him beeing arrested, i hope the punishment is severe and can be used as a benchmark for any others that are caught doing the same.

Lock him up for good.

But I dont get the mentality to hand your self in, when he must know hes gonna get locked up.

He didn't "hand himself in". He was arrested and then confessed.

....but i cannot find angry words to say about this teenager, virus progs arent as prolific as spyware etc that M$ et al hide in their programs to monitor the publics PC use, HOORAY for virus creators, it'll keep M$ and Symantec bizzy keeping their software up to date. Perhaps we should hire them to hack porn websites and fraud sites, so we can put their 'GIFT' to good use !!

that "lock him up for good" is a suitable recommendation for punishment for releasing a computer virus. I'm all in favour of punishing such people,and punishing them with a custodial sentence, but I suggest that each case is considered on its merits. None of us knows much about the specific circumstances of this case, and I think it might be a good idea to lighten up on the gung-ho triumphialist statements until we do.

2 threads I posted this morning about the sasser worm were pulled, there was offensive content in the text, just a link to a news report that an arrest had been made
