Welsh Web designer pleads guilty to virus creation
Sentence next year for author of Gokar, Redesi and Admirer
A 21-old Welsh Web designer has pleaded guilty to creating and distributing three mass mailer viruses, in a hearing at Bow Street Magistrates Court this morning.
Magistrates passed over responsibility for sentencing to Southwark Crown Court, where a judge will sentence Vallor early in the New Year. A date for sentencing is yet to be set.
Charges against Vallor relating to the possession of indecent images of children were withdrawn at the hearing this morning.
Valler was arrested on February 14 this year and charged with offences under section three of the Computer Misuse Act 1990, following intelligence received by British police from the FBI's Baltimore field office.
North Wales police were assisted in their investigation by officers from Scotland Yard's specialist Computer Crime Unit. ®
