Sasser author tried to limit damage

The latest reports show that the accused German Sasser worm author tried to release a "damage limiting version" of the now infamous worm before he was arrested. Apparently, it did not work. German officials continue to deny that Sven Jaschan was motivated by trying to drum up work form his mom's PC support company and are painting him as a typical peer recognition motivated criminal hacker. It will be interesting to hear Sven's testimony when he goes to trial.
