    An 18-year-old high school student has been arrested in Germany on suspicion of creating the Sasser internet worm, police say. The worm spread through an estimated 18 million computers across the world last week, continually shutting down and rebooting them.

    Police say the man was arrested in the northern German town of Rotenburg. Investigators were searching his parents' home, according to the German newspaper Bild. No further details have been given about the suspect, who was arrested on Friday.
