When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

What do I believe is important about these articles?

1) a teenager of 18 and upwards should be responsible for his actions, but not condemned for "life" on crimes of this nature;

2) us - you and me - have a very, very large part to play in preventing the proliferation of viruses, and, most of us just don't understand how we can help. That is partially what I try to teach on my Web site http://www.larryblakeley.com;

3) what role does Microsoft play in a market that they dominate - a corporation that us, Americans, essentially created for Bill Gates through the purchasing of its products that we either thought we could not do without, or our bosses thought we just had to have in order to produce a simple text document. The snow ball was made by us, set rolling down the hill, and has been growing larger ever since. Now we find out that their software is full of holes and has a large part to play in all of this destruction being transmitted over the internet.

"He is only an apprentice and will get an excellent vocational training,'' Hausmann said in an e-mail. "I think everyone should get a second chance.''

Jaschan has been charged with computer sabotage in Germany and faces three to five years in prison. He has admitted to being the author of the various variants of the Sasser and Netsky worms, among the fastest-spreading worms this year.

Hausmann called Jaschan an ordinary teenager "who wants -- after his sentence -- to live on in an ordinary life.'' He said the teen asked for a job and stood out in the application process, despite having just "a little bit of know-how in software development.''

"A lot of legitimate people -- people without criminal intent -- do stay abreast of what the hacker community is up to,'' said (Ira) Winkler, whose book "Spies Among Us'' on the hacker mindset is due out next year. "They don't go out and commit crimes. They don't go and explore other people's systems because they just feel like it.''

Mr. Winkler's response to the email from me to him - referred to below:

.".. I basically claim that SecurePoint is trying to gain cheap publicity off the fact that an 18 year old, who is completely untrustable, is being portrayed as a genius because of the mere willingness to create hundreds of millions in dollars. SecurePoint, as a security company should know better, and should be held responsible by the security community..."
