This man “wanted to count the number of computers on the internet” and unleashed a now legendary piece of software causing a lot of “damage”. Who is he? Fake Bonus points if you explain the post title.

Cracked by: Sumanth Patlolla , s m muneer ali , Dibyo and Supritha Maiya

Answer:
Robert Tappan Morris, author of the Morris worm, which is arguably more piece of art.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.
