Thank you Sober?

A child porn offender in Germany turned himself in to the police after mistaking an email he received from a computer worm for an official warning that he was under investigation, authorities said on Tuesday. The 20-year-old was caught out by a version of the "Sober" worm which sends out messages from a host of fabricated addresses. The trap was set when the man got an email saying "an investigation is underway," that listed the sender as Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA). Police charged him after finding pornographic images of children on his home computer. At least in my opinion one good effect from the Sober worm!
