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
