Description

"Only hours after the ILOVEYOU virus paralyzed computer systems around the world, an independent band of investigators began to hunt down the virus author through cyberspace. ... Within a few hours, the collective minds of the ad-hoc group (including MSNBC's Bob Sullivan) came within a whisker of finding the virus writer. This story is the first in the world to mention the name 'Onel de Guzman' -- days before authorities in the Philippines traced the program to the disgruntled college student."
