News: Two Young Fellas Nabbed For The TK Worm

 Two young Brits have been charged in connection with the TK Worm (also known as Troj/TKBot-A), which appeared last year and caused an estimated £5.5 million worth of damage. Jordan Bradley, 20, of Bates Avenue, Darlington, and Andrew Harvey, 22, of Scardale Way, Durham, are believed by the National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) to be members of a hacking group known as the “Thr34t-Krew” which launched the Trojan horse designed to break into internet-connected computers.
 
It’s something of a roll for law enforcement folks. Recently, two other young men were named in connection with variants of
the Blaster internet worm.  Jeffrey Lee Parson was arrested by the FBI in late August, and a Romanian man is believed to be assisting police with their enquiries.  Meanwhile Simon Vallor, who served nine months in prison for creating three viruses, was released yesterday.
