Romanian Blaster worm suspect

Dan Dumitru Ciobanu, suspected of writing a variant of the Blaster worm,
can get a maximum of 15 years in prison under the romanian cyber-crime law, more than twice the maximum sentence for rape.


„We have had this debate that maybe the Romanian law is too tough. But it’s alright to be like this,” Romanian MP Varujan Pambuccian, who co-wrote the law, told Reuters. „We intended to make it tough.”

The Romanian law may be the toughest anywhere. Britain’s Computer Misuse Act, for example, carries a maximum sentence of five years if convicted of releasing a virus that infects other computers.
