frustrated hacker releases tool

A hacker has broken into computers at sensitive South Korean research institutes and government agencies, cyber security authorities said Saturday. The author of Peep Trojan, 30-year-old Taiwanese Wang Ping-an, was arrested in May by Taiwan's Internet crime investigation task force, the centre said. Wang did not steal data himself but when he was unable to sell his data-stealing virus, he posted it on hackers' Web sites for free. The virus operates in attached e-mail files and jumps into action when a user opens these files and the hacker can get access to the victim's computer data
According to the Symantec Web site the Peep Trojan has not been found in any computers outside of Asia
