The name Ron is very public in america, canada and some other english
countries so I exspect you're from such a country...

He didn't break any german law with the his worm.
Just the fact that PCs reboot or wont work is something they try to
judge him for.
But even they try that: They'll fail.
Companies have to patch their systems so if a company get's infected by

And now come down and remember the good old times of Kevin Mitnick
(another criminal, am I right?).
And I hope that even our english speaking readers wont comment this
topic anymore and close it. Otherwise we can start talking about politic
and the criminal who's the president of the USA.
