    ". . . Meanwhile, however, Mr Cluley said that the anti-virus world had received some good news today about the Sober worm. This often advised recipients that the FBI or other law enforcers were aware that they had visited illegal websites and asked them to hand themselves to the authorities.
    German police reported that a child pornographer near Hanover had believed the worm's message and handed himself in, he said. Investigations found child pornography on his computers".

    Sounds like a great idea for the FBI to have some code written to do just that, To track and notify the appropriate local agency of the activity!
