17yr-old Teener Goofs Twitter (again!)

Mikeyy Mooney, a 17-year-old from New York has admitted to be the creator of this weekend’s StalkDaily attack and has now launched another strain called the Mikeyy worm.
status.twitter.com as of 2hrs ago states,
“We are currently addressing a new manifestation of the worm attack.
No passwords, phone numbers, or other sensitive information were compromised as part of this renewed attack.”

Mikeyy described how he carried out the attack:
“I am the person who coded the XSS which then acted as a worm when it auto updated a users profile and status, which then infected other users who viewed their profile. I did this out of boredom, to be honest. I usually like to find vulnerabilities within websites and try not to cause too much damage, but start a worm or something to give the developers an insight on the problem and while doing so, promoting myself or my website.”

truly, idle hands are the devil’s tools!
