If you were the FBI and were in charge of tracking down the source of the recent Blaster worm, where would you start? The obvious choice is to look at how the script kiddie renamed Blaster. In this case the culprit, a teenager from Minnesota who goes by the username “teekid” renamed one of his Blaster rewrites “TEEKID.EXE” Not very smart, but it just proves that this script kiddie cared more about his ego than he did getting caught.
This kid has left tracks all over the Web. Here’s a cached version of a hacked Minnesota Government Finance Officers Association web site where he’s written “Still hacked by Teekid”.
