JC`zic, the creator of Sockets de Troie, is the apparent author.
The "information and protections" links lead to French-language materials which include a text detailing the system effects of the various ST versions, images of the GUI clients, a Registry file, and a program which appears intended to disable the version 2.5 virus.
By way of explanation, I added a link to Joystick Magazine; although the Joystick site doesn't appear to carry the article to which the author refers.
I invite corrections of my machine-assisted translation. I've placed some questionable words in [square brackets].

Hello to all,
I would like to say some
words concerning "Sockets de Troie."
Yes I did it, surely to amuse and
to learn Internet programming,
But I never imagined
the consequences that would
what the majority among
you do with it disappoints me greatly.
What is done is done, but I would just like
you to cease to use it and to [take you to task]
for calling yourselves 'hackers' whereas you only make
[trouble] and do not understand anything in the world of the Net : (
Also, refrain from asking me questions on this
subject if you would, by mail or ICQ.
In short, I do not intend anymore
to speak of it everywhere I go,
don't forget that the
last summer was finished
in June, it is
I have a life to start just as
you have other things to do so as to
destroy all that moves to amuse yourselves.
As you already know, I provided the anti-virus to
disinfect the virus v2.5, and I also provided a patch
for the registry which protects against all the versions of
sockets23, the keys for version 1.0, for version 1.1
and for all versions 2 (thus 2.x)...
Also, for those who would like more
information, technical cards
are available. The article in
Joystick No. 98 [has] this information and
my [indicators of] 2.5 for self-protection.
[Note], the anti-virus does not include the virus but needs
the network layer installed to send data
to the virus itself. (But you can remove it by hand thanks to
this data, then scan your disk to clean the files).
