Sadly for the family, getting a court order against http://www.wikipedia.de will not be the solution they are looking for. I find it unlikely that they will ever be satisfied in this issue, and disrupting http://www.wikipedia.de has only probably drawn more attention to the hacker's short life.

Chain letters like this are too easily forwarded to friends, family and colleagues without people using their common sense. Stories like this become urban legends, constantly being repeated without anyone bothering to check the facts. Hoaxes and chain letters like this are not harmless - they waste time and bandwidth, and can be a genuine headache for support departments. Users need to be more skeptical, and ask themselves whether everything they are told by email can be believed.

It is probably the biggest virus since the Love Bug. It went quiet overnight but took off again this morning when people started opening their e-mails.
