From the BBC
"A 20-year-old hacker has been arrested in northern France for spreading a virus via smartphone "apps" that defrauded thousands of victims.
Prosecutors say he stole tiny sums from 17,000 people, amassing about 500,000 euros (£405,000) since 2011.
Working from his parents' home in northern France, he snared victims with free downloads designed to look like original applications, they say."
Yikes! "open" for business
