    <p>Not like I didn't believe it when I heard they announced a bounty on the authors of viruses and worms, but it's very cool to see it actually come to fruition!</p>
    <blockquote><a title="Microsoft" href="http://www.microsoft.com/" target="_blank">Microsoft</a> Corp. today announced that two individuals who helped identify the creator of the notorious Sasser Worm in 2004 will share a reward of $250,000 (U.S.). The author of the worm, arrested in May 2004, was found guilty Friday by a court in Verden, Germany, and handed a sentence of one year and nine months on probation and 200 hours of community service.</blockquote>
