5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

A 21-old Welsh Web designer has appeared in court charged with creating and distributing three mass mailer viruses.

Simon Vallor, of Llandudno, North Wales, also faced charges relating to the possession of indecent images of children in an appearance before Bow Street Magistrates Court last Friday (November 8). The appearance follows his arrest on suspicion of creating the Gokar, Redesi and Admirer mass mailing viruses.

Acting on information received from the FBI's Baltimore field office, Valler was arrested on February 14 this year and charged with offences under section three of the Computer Misuse Act 1990. His computer was seized during this arrest, and its subsequent examination - allegedly - uncovered child porn.

North Wales police were assisted in their investigation by officers from Scotland Yard’s specialist Computer Crime Unit. ®
