More signs of Sasser author's hero status

Following up on my mention of a story describing alleged Sasser author Sven Jaschan's hero status in some of the German press, it seems that Jaschan now has his own fan/legal defense fund raising web site. Apparently, Sasser was intended as "a harmless wake-up call to the world." The site goes on to ask of us, "Imagine what could happen if this had been done by criminals with no respect for the public"? On a related note, Jaschan has now being fingered as the creator of the NetSky worm - all 28 version. Sven is free on bail in German and faces up to 5 years in prison and a number of civil suits.
