David Morgan, senior consultant for Internet Security Systems (ISS), revealed the following news to VNUnet:
"Slapper mailed the addresses of infected machines back to an email address in the Ukraine," he said. "This email was checked from a traceable location and, as a result, a 21-year-old male has been arrested by the authorities."
Lot of questions are left unanswered, so in the next few days we will see if this person wrote Slapper/Slapper.B/both slappers/or maybe neither one.
