Microsoft: Bring me the head of the Conficker worm programmer!
And suddenly, all the late nights of IRC channel bragging seems like a bad idea: Microsoft has put up a bounty of $250,000 to anyone who can identify the author or authors of the Conficker or Downadup worm, which takes advantage of a buffer overflow vulnerability in Windows to propagate, steal personal information and infect the machine with malware. Note that the dripping, decapitated coconuts of the suspected perps aren't good by their own... Microsoft will require some proof before ponying up the gees.
