The Australian 21-year-old, Ashley Towns, revealed the news on his Twitter feed, saying: “yey, i got the job! i’m now an iPhone application developer!”. Mogeneration have a number of apps, including Lingopal, Xumii and Moo Shake!
Despite infecting approximately 100 phones with his rickrolling virus and admitting the creation of the worm, Towns hasn’t been contacted by the law authorities. His attack was relatively trivial but it did lay the foundation for another, more malicious, virus that targeted ING customers.
