'Great knowledge' isn't the words I'm looking for.. My english was a bit
off. What I meant was that sertainly this fellow has some skills.

Well. I think that this fellow has shown enough thoroughness (from what
I read here at full-disclosure. I havent had the time to analyse the
worm myself yet) to at least check for dumb and costly mistakes. But I
might be wrong - I just think that a person that says "Look! The name
'Andy' is in there! And there is some Forth.. Hm.. If we find a
Forth-programmer named Andy - we have him!!" is...well...way off. :)
And personally I don't care either. I could care less if SCO or
Microsoft gets DDoS:ed.. Likewise, I won't cry if those multinational
coorporations loose some money cause they can't handle a few million
