Authorities reveal new 'Love Bug' evidence

A diskette seized from a Manila apartment contained a virus program with characteristics similar to the Love Bug computer worm, Philippine investigators said.

The diskette reportedly included a resume of computer school student Michael Buen, along with a warning that “if I don’t get a stable job by the end of the month, I will release a third virus that will remove all folders in the primary hard disk.”

Authorities now believe as many as 40 people took part in creating the virus, which affected millions of computers worldwide and caused at least $7 billion in damage.
