Blaster Virus Author Teen could pay Microsoft over $600,000.
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 1/26/2005 07:27:00 PM.

Jeffrey Lee Parson, the teen who admitted to writing the Blaster virus, is now facing a three-year jail sentence and a bill for $626,000.

Parson, a 19-year-old from Minnesota, is due to be sentenced this week for writing the Blaster.B variant, which prosecutors claim infected around 48,000 machines that hadn't had a Microsoft patch installed to protect against the Windows XP and 2000 flaw, and caused damage totalling $1.2m.

The variant also tried to use its infected zombies commit a denial-of-service attack on the Microsoft Windows Update site. Now, Microsoft stands to be the main beneficiary if the teen malware writer has to pay the requested restitution.
