An anti-US hacker has claimed responsibility for the 'Here you have' e-mail worm that spread across the internet last week.
According to tech news site IDG, a hacker, who uses an Iraq Resistance e-mail address, has claimed responsibility for the attack. The hacker is said to have links to cyber Jihad group Tariq ibn Ziyad.
The 'Here you have' worm, which has coding similar to other malware released last month, affected computers at Disney, Proctor and Gamble, Wells Fargo, and NASA.
The hacker claimed that the worm was a simply a medium for him to get his "voice" to the people.
He said that the he could have made the worm a lot more dangerous if he wanted to, but he refrained from doing so.
“I could smash all those infected but I wouldn't. I hope all people understand that I am not negative person!” he said.
On Sunday, Iraq Resistance posted a video arguing that the hacker's actions were nothing in comparison to those of Pastor Terry Jones. The Pastor had threatened to burn copies of the Koran on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
