Recommended Posts

Hahaha...I love it when the bad guys get busted. :sick:

The Metropolitan Police's Computer Crime Unit, the Finnish National Bureau of Investigation (NBI Finland) and the Finnish Pori Police Department, have arrested a 63-year-old man in Suffolk, a 28-year-old man in Scotland, and a 19-year-old man in Finland. The men, who are all suspected of being members of the M00P virus-writing gang, have been arrested in connection with a conspiracy to infect computers with malware.

quoted from the 4th paragraph

The virus writing gang is believed to have chosen the name of their group after an episode of the South Park cartoon series where the characters formed a band called 'Moop'. The episode involved some non-too-subtle arguments about how file sharing affects the music industry.
