Submission + - Security Researcher chases virus maker off the Net

An anonymous reader writes: I just saw a writeup on CNET that that covers the pursuit of a virus writer who created a fake Grand Theft Auto game, crippling PCs by causing them to endlessly reboot. Despite the police apparently not being very interested, a security researcher pursued his man anyway, culminating in a teary eyed "I'm leaving the internet" post from the virus writer himself. Awesome stuff, and one in the eye for the bad guys (for once).
