Rewards to Dob In a Virus Author

Microsoft is now offering rewards to catch virus authors.

They’ve announced the creation of the Anti-Virus Reward Program, initially funded with $5 million to “help law enforcement agencies identify and bring to justice those who illegally release damaging worms, viruses and other types of malicious code on the Internet. Microsoft will provide the monetary rewards for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for launching malicious viruses and worms on the Internet. Residents of any country are eligible for the reward, according to the laws of that country, because Internet viruses affect the Internet community worldwide.”
