Fujacks hackers jailed in China

The four Chinese cyber-criminals behind the Fujacks worm have been jailed by a Chinese court.

Fujacks caused havoc earlier this year when it covertly stole usernames and passwords from online gamers, and converted icons of infected programs into a picture of a panda burning joss-sticks.

Li Jun, who confessed to writing the worm and selling it to 12 clients for more than ¥100,000 yuan (£6,250) was sentenced to four years in prison by a court in Xiantao in Hubei province.

Wang Lei, Zhang Shun and Lei Lei were sentenced to between one year and two and a half years in jail for their part in the scheme.

"Chinese cyber-criminals are not just hitting PCs in their own country, but affecting computer users worldwide, so it is encouraging to see the authorities taking action against the perpetrators," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos.

"A surprising proportion of malware written in China is designed to steal credentials from players of massively multi-player online role-playing games."

Chinese authorities said that the majority of the Fujacks infections have been dealt with after police persuaded Li Jun to write a counter-agent to his program to clean-up infected computers.

"Despite the worm's author writing a program to clean up his infestation, it does not seem to have gained him much sympathy from the authorities," noted Cluley.

Chinese hackers have been making the headlines recently. Online attacks on governments in the US, UK and Germany have been blamed on Chinese hackers working for the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), a claim that China has strongly denied.

Осуден на 4 години затвор и еден куп понуди за работа

Jailed virus author gets prison, job offers

The author of a computer virus which disables security software and steals online-game credentials received a four-year sentence on Monday, and nearly a dozen job offers, according to Chinese press reports.

A Chinese court found virus writer Li Jun guilty on Monday of writing and releasing the computer virus known as Fujacks by antivirus companies and as "Panda Burning Joss Sticks" in China. A company hit by the virus has offered the writer the position of technology director at a million yuan, or more than US$130,000, a year, after hearing that the man only created the virus because he was frustrated with his lack of luck in finding a job, according to the Changjiang Times. Nine other companies have also offered Li positions.

The jumble of job offers has perplexed some antivirus companies.

"It's important that the IT community does not send out a message that writing viruses or worms is cool, or a fast track into employment," Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos, said in a statement on Tuesday. "Li Jun broke the law and infected innocent people's computers and websites, causing financial damage. To reward his criminal act, infamy and bad behavior with a job offer in the IT industry seems frankly perverted."

Li is not the first cybercriminal to raise security experts' hackles by being offered a job. A member of the well-known virus-writing group, 29A, landed a job with Czech technology firm Zoner Software in 2004. A year later, the convicted creator of the Netsky and Sasser worms, Sven Jaschan, found a job as a programmer. And this month, a former security professional who was convicted of creating an Internet worm in 2000, landed in court for a second time on charges of running a large identity-theft scheme.

Chinese virus writer Li Jun made 145,000 yuan, a seventh of his potential starting salary, by selling his virus program to online thieves, prosecutors told news reporters.

Понуда за работа во сигурносната индустрија

Fujacks hacker offered security job


Eyebrows have been raised after a Chinese virus writer was deluged with job offers after being jailed for four years for creating the Fujacks worm.

Chinese media reports suggest that 25 year-old Li Jun has been offered a £66,000 a year job by Jushu Technology, a firm based in Hangzhou City. According to Li's lawyer, he has been offered around 10 jobs.

"It is important that the IT community does not send out a message that writing viruses or worms is cool, or a fast track into employment," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos.

"Li Jun broke the law and infected innocent people's computers and websites, causing financial damage. To reward his criminal act, infamy and bad behaviour with a job offer in the IT industry is frankly perverse."

The offer has raised concerns in the industry because it breaks the increasingly shaky unwritten agreement that security software companies in the West will not employ former virus writers.

Sven Jaschan, who authored the widespread Netsky and Sasser worms, caused outrage in the IT community three years ago when he was hired by a German security firm.
