Subject: Microsoft Announces Anti-Virus Reward Program (expanded)

More then simply 250k for sobig and other authors. Looks like a great
marketing ploy for MS.

Haven't caught up on the entire "other thread" but it seemed to only cover a

Microsoft Announces Anti-Virus Reward Program

Microsoft Teams With Law Enforcement to Root Out Malicious Coders

With $5 Million Reward Fund as a Part of Broader Security Initiative

WASHINGTON - Nov. 5, 2003 -Microsoft Corp. today announced the creation of
the Anti-Virus Reward Program, initially funded with $5 million (U.S.), to
help law enforcement agencies identify and bring to justice those who
illegally release damaging worms, viruses and other types of malicious code
on the Internet. Microsoft will provide the monetary rewards for information
resulting in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for launching
malicious viruses and worms on the Internet. Residents of any country are
eligible for the reward, according to the laws of that country, as Internet
viruses affect the Internet community worldwide.
