    Microsoft bounty for worm creator



    A reward of $250,000 (£172,000) has been offered by Microsoft to find who is behind the Downadup/Conficker virus.

    Since it started circulating in October 2008 the Conficker worm has managed to infect millions of computers worldwide.

    The software giant is offering the cash reward because it views the Conficker worm as a criminal attack.
