1 15 year old "Super Hacker" busted on Thu Dec 17, 2009 2:54 am


Super Hacker Apprehended

A police spokesman announced Friday that officers had apprehended a super
hacker who turned out to be a fifteen year old high school boy named Kim.
To date 152 people have filed complaints about the 15 super viruses Kim
created and e-mailed, but police expect the final figure to be over 2,000.

Kim told police that he mailed the viruses to demonstrate his talents and
to find out if anyone could develop a 'vaccine' for them. The viruses were
so complex that they were virtually impossible to kill. The spokesman said
that Kim was known as a computer genius from the 7th grade, when he
learned to handle the machine code language 'assembly 3'. one of just
forty to fifty people in Korea with such a talent.

Yang Keun-won, head of the National Police Office's computer crime team
commented that a virus creator and hacker like Kim could become a
"national treasure" in the information society of the future. He added
that he will guide Kim along the legal path of computer work.
