German teenager admits in court to creating Sasser worm
German teenager Sven Jaschan confessed at his trial on Tuesday to creating last year's Sasser computer worm that crashed hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide after spreading at lightning speed over the Internet.
Jaschan's admission is a reiteration of the confession he made last year when he was arrested. He is on trial in the city of Verden, Germany, where he faces charges of computer sabotage, data manipulation, and disruption of public systems.
