    AUGUST 29 -- A Minnesota teenager was arrested today and charged with 
    unleashing the computer virus that has caused havoc on the Internet 
    and in e-mail boxes nationwide. Jeffrey Lee Parson, an 18-year-old 
    known online as "teekid," admitted to FBI agents that he tweaked the 
    original "Blaster" virus and used the variant to infect the computers 
    of unsuspecting victims, according to the below criminal complaint. 
    During a raid at Parson's Hopkins, Minnesota home, federal agents 
    carted off seven computers, which are now undergoing a forensic
