The Dutch script kiddie known as OnTheFly, who created the Anna Kournikova virus that rocked the online world in February, is set to appear in court in September.
The 20 year-old, Jan de Wit, will appear before authorities on 12 September to face charges of spreading malicious data with intent to cause damage.
OnTheFly was arrested in his hometown of Sneek back in February, only hours after posting an apology for creating the virus on the internet. He used a point and click virus generator to create the worm, which then spread like wildfire around the world crashing mail servers as it went.
He will be the first Dutch virus writer ever to be prosecuted - a rare event in the online security world - and faces between six months and four years in prison.
