The FBI has announced that it has traced a hacker who disrupted business operations at the Neton-Washington water association to Sri Lanka.

According to the Associated Press newswire, utility manager Scott Borman said that the multiple hacking attempts, which downed the utility's server for three days, have been traced to a Sri Lankan ISP.

As yet, no arrests have been made.

The water utility said the hacker planted a number of files on its system, causing the email server to repeatedly crash, keeping the machine offline.
