A Filipino computer student has admitted that he might have released the notorious Love Bug virus by accident.
23-year old Onel A. de Guzman said it such a scenario was “possible”, but refused to say whether he had written the program.
Authorities say de Guzman is one of four “possible suspects” in the attack that crippled email systems worldwide last week.
Officials said they were examining 17 computer diskettes seized earlier this week from an apartment where he lived with his sister and her boyfriend, who was arrested but released for lack of evidence.
