Brooklyn's 'Mikeyy' Behind Twitter Worm Attacks

This past weekend's three fast-spreading Twitter worms were created by Michael "Mikeyy" Mooney, the 17-year-old Brooklyn boy who created, according to eFluxMedia and other sites.

Mikeyy's worms posted unwanted tweets on users pages. The messages read:

"Mikeyy I am done...,"
"MikeyyMikeyy is done…" and
"Twitter please fix this, regards Mikeyy."

From ". . . What was startling was the speed at which pages were impacted, and the fact that Twitter has been on to the worms for three days and has still been unable to cleanse its site completely of the malicious code."

According to VNUNet, Twitter "identified and deleted almost 10,000 tweets that could have continued to spread the worm."
