Chinese virus writer seeks employment as security expert
« on: January 05, 2010, 09:26:48 PM »
A Chinese virus writer says he hopes to put his past misdemeanours behind him, and find work in the computer security business, now he has been released from jail.

28-year-old Li Jun wrote the Fujacks worm (also known as Worm.Whboy) which made headlines in 2007 because it converted icons of infected programs into a picture of a panda burning joss-sticks as it stole usernames and passwords from online games players.

According to media reports from China, Li's good behaviour meant he did not have to serve his full prison sentence of four years, and yesterday he arrived in Beijing to pursue his dream to find a job in the anti-virus business.
