Chinese Police authorities have arrested eight suspects involved in producing and spreading a severe computer virus.

The virus W32.Viking (also known as Worm.Fujacks) made headlines last month because it converts icons of infected programs into a picture of a panda burning joss-sticks as it stole usernames and passwords from on-line games players.

Li Jun one of the suspect from Wuhan, in Central China’s Hubei Province, is accused of creating the Viking worm. The other suspect have charged with making profits by stealing accounts of computer games on QQ, an on-line chatting tool equivalent to ICQ.
