Authorities in the Philippines have dropped all the charges against Onel de Guzman, the man suspected of unleashing the love bug virus earlier this year.

According to Reuters, chief state prosecutor, Jovencito Zuno, told reporters that he signed a resolution dropping charges against de Guzman.

At this stage it's not why the charges were dropped.

Until June this year, the Philippines did not have any laws dealing with this kind of computer crime.

De Guzman - the prime suspect in the case - had been detained under a law relating to gaining passwords to defraud banks and credit cards.

When the ILOVEYOU virus hit earlier this year it cost gazillions of dollars to put right, according to experts, and hit major companies and governmental organisations. ®
