""Gobbles", the German hacker who improbably claimed to have infected peer-to-peer file sharing networks and to "0wn" your computer this week, has confirmed that his brag was a hoax.

If you believed the original story then sorry but you are a complete prat. But then I don't think anyone took this rather sad little fellow seriously. I know I certainly didn't.
