11 jailed over China's biggest Trojan virus

ELEVEN people have been jailed for up to three years with fines totaling 830,000 yuan (US$121,554) for writing and selling China's biggest computer virus, today's People's Daily reported.

They developed a nationwide sales network involving more than 100 people in 16 provinces and cities with sales of more than 30 million yuan, according to Gulou District People's Court in Xuzhou City, east China's Jiangsu Province.

The court said Lu Yizhong and Zeng Yifu wrote Trojan virus programs between June 2007 and August 2007 and asked Yan Renhai and his girlfriend Chen Huiting to sell them from February 2008.

Yan later sold the programs in bulk to lesser agents including Zhang Fan and Zhang Jinhuang. The virus allowed buyers to steal 5.3 million online game accounts and passwords.

Lu and Zeng gained 645,000 yuan while Yan and Chen made 310,000 yuan.
