A German youth has admitted to creating the Sasser computer virus during the first day of his trial in Germany. BBC News World Edition Tuesday, 5 July, 2005, 13:44 GMT 14:44 UK Sven Jaschan is charged with computer sabotage, disrupting public services and illegally altering data. The 19-year-old is being tried as a minor behind closed doors as he was 17 when he wrote the worm. Sasser wrought havoc in many companies when the Windows worm struck in May 2004, swamping net links and making computers unusable.

The creator of Sasser has been convicted.

According to the BBC article,

Sven Jaschan was found guilty of computer sabotage and illegally altering data...

However "...Sven Jaschan avoided a jail sentence by the skin of his teeth because he was arrested within days of his 18th birthday.."

He has had two years to worry about what was going to happen to him which is about what jail sentence he would have gotten, and hopefully learned his lesson.
