Worm conspiracy pair jailed

by Nikola Strahija on October 8th, 2005 Two hackers were jailed on Friday after admitting to their role in creating a computer worm.

Andrew Harvey (24) from Sherburn Village, Durham, and Jordan Bradley (22) from Darlington, admitted to conspiracy to cause unauthorised modification of computers with intent which happened between December 31. 2001 and February 7. 2003.

Harvey was sentenced to six months, and Bradley to three months. They were part of a conspiracy, which aimed to spread a computer worm worldwide. The court was told that while the worm did not cause widespread problems, it was capable of causing widespread disruption if the pair had wanted.
