May 15, 2000 -- A local Internet provider said today it used caller 
ID to trace the origin of the "Love Bug" e-mail virus to a Manila 
phone line that had been used before for breaking into its computer 

The disclosure explained how investigators were quickly able to 
center their investigation on the residents of an apartment in a 
lower middle-class Manila neighborhood, including a young computer 
student who has acknowledged he may have accidentally unleashed the 
"ILOVEYOU" virus.
