Sa Wakas!( a tagalog word for Finaly) This Movie is finished and it is going to come out sooner this year 2011. The movie was based upon the distractive “I LOVE YOU Virus” created by a student or AMA Computer College Makati named Onel De Gusman but he was kicked out the school in his senior year.
About the I Love You Virus
In 1999, a student from AMA Computer College Makati named Onel de Guzman submitted a thesis proposal for the creation of a computer program that will hack into computer systems and extract vital information, particularly Internet Service accounts. The proposal was unanimously rejected by the College of Computer Studies academic board. De Guzman was scheduled to complete his studies in 2000 and an academic subject called “Thesis A” was one of his final requirements before graduation. After AMA’s graduation day on May 3, 2000, an email trojan called ILOVEYOU spread across the globe and caused delays in several online transactions. The ILOVEYOU virus unleashed a flood of e-mail that hit at least 45 million users in at least 20 countries, according to one estimate. The virus started with ILOVEYOU in the subject line, but several variations appeared soon afterward, including one masquerading as an e-mail joke and another as a receipt for a Mother’s Day gift. The virus both replicates itself and steals the user names and passwords of unsuspecting victims. The e-mail replies from angry virus recipients to the creator passed through a U.S. e-mail address, “firstname.lastname@example.org“, which then forwarded them to the two Access.Net (Philippine Internet Service Provider) e-mail accounts used by the virus creator – “email@example.com” and “firstname.lastname@example.org“.
The virus, according to Guinness World Records, was the fastest spreading computer worm until the release of Mydoom in 2004. The virus was traced to an apartment room in downtown Manila. The tenant was Onel de Guzman. Guzman was invited by the Philippines’ National Bureau of Investigation for questioning. De Guzman, in an interview, admitted spreading the virus “by accident”. In reaction to the news, AMA expelled de Guzman from AMA Makati and considered him as “drop-out” for life. The NBI charged De Guzman for violation of Republic Act 8484 or the Access Devices Regulation Act on 1998. But due to lack of sufficiency the Philippine Department of Justice dropped the charges as there was no clear laws regulating the World Wide Web. Due to this incident, on June 14, 2000, Republic Act 8792 known as Philippine Electronic Commerce Act of 2000 was signed.
