    Viruses can do some good, at least some of the time, it appears. A German computer user who produced child pornography gave himself up to the police after having been convinced by the Sober-Z worm that the authorities had evidence to show that he had visited illegal websites.

    The worm convinced the 20-year-old that he was being investigated by Germany's Federal Crime Office (known as the BKA). Police in the city of Paderborn, near Hanover, said that investigations later found child pornography on his computers and led to charges.

    LMAO! He turns himself in, however, if he had erased the child porn, he would have never been held on any charges...
