Sober Worm's Unexpected Good Result: Pedophile Convinced To Turn Self In
from the unintended-consequences... dept
Remember last month when the latest version of the Sober worm started making the rounds over email? The emails mostly looked to be from some sort of official agency (I saw FBI and CIA) claiming that they had been monitoring your visits to illegal sites and saying you should turn yourself in. Apparently, some guy in Germany believed them. Because of the worm email, he turned himself in for visiting child pornography sites. The police then went to his home and found the illegal material on his computer.
