He was arrested Thursday by the machine's owner _ the head of the Copenhagen police's special computer crime unit. Detective Arne Gammelgaard had installed an anti-virus program in his computer at home. On Sunday, it warned him about an intruder and enabled him to gather information about the visitor. Gammelgaard investigated and an Internet provider helped track the hacker. [An anti-virus computer warned him about an intruder, and enabled him to gain information about the visitor? A hacker is a person.. a virus is a piece of software. Hrm.] The student, whose name was not released, confessed to hacking and said he randomly picked the cyber-cop. The hacker was released after he was charged with ``unauthorized access to another person's documents or programs.'' The maximum penalty is six month's imprisonment.
