SCO Puts Bounty on Worm Writer
The SCO Group confirms it is experiencing a distributed denial-of-service attack apparently related to the Mydoom worm, and it is offering a reward for capture of the virus writer. Its apparent target is SCO, which is embroiled in legal action against IBM over intellectual property rights related to its ownership of System V Unix code. The company says it is offering a reward of up to $250,000 "for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for creating the Mydoom virus." Experts says the damage could continue for months or years. About one in every 12 messages being sent through the Internet contains the virus. Another story can be found here.
