Authorities reportedly are closing in on the hacker responsible for creating what’s being called the fastest-moving and most widespread computer virus ever seen.
The Love Bug virus that wreaked havoc on computer systems worldwide appears to have originated in the Philippines, and the author may be a young man living in a Manlia suburb, authorities said.
A Manila Internet service provider said the virus appeared to have first spread from two of its e-mail addresses.
Authoroities say the suspect has been using hacked accounts, illegally obtaining the user name and passwords, to launch his attacks.
