I Used to be the [H] News Guy

Apparently, a worm has made its way around the Twitter-sphere, infecting profiles and sending a message to the profile owners friends to visit a certain website. Mikeyy Mooney, the alleged creator, said he did it out of boredom. Nice.
I am the person who coded the XSS which then acted as a worm when it auto updated a users profile and status, which then infected other users who viewed their profile. I did this out of boredom, to be honest. I usually like to find vulnerabilities within websites and try not to cause too much damage, but start a worm or something to give the developers an insight on the problem and while doing so, promoting myself or my website.
