Swedish Police Question Iraqi War Virus Suspect

According to reports in the Swedish press, police in Sweden have identified and questioned the author of the W32/Ganda.A virus, which spreads in email claiming to be spy satellite photos of Iraq. The virus is capable of creating English and Swedish messages, and it spread quite well in Sweden starting on 17th March.

"The authorities appear to have moved quickly in locating this virus author," said Carole Theriault, anti-virus consultant at Sophos. "It is good to see computer crime authorities around the world taking the virus threat more seriously. The worm author was particularly insidious in using current events to spur the general public into double-clicking on the infected attachment."
