Not just China, I'm sure. But how scary. I've always thought of hackers as being loners with nothing better to do. I sure don't like the idea of a large scale hacker operation...

That is scary. It is not just one or two people doing this but it is an entire operation! We are not safe online by the looks…I guess I have always known that to a certain extent but to hear something of that magnitude it is quite off putting! It is so sad that they will even try to steal from your computer! These are the times...

Actually, a lot of game hackers come from China. They have a vast population with lots of talented people. So given sufficient training, they would be very good hackers. Another reason for such large number of hackers in China is due to job insufficiency and the lucrativeness of this industry.

I do wonder why people go crazy ! I really do not what the issue is all about! Maybe they wanted to spread a virus and create a global computer shutdown and cause a huge hype - just like the Y2K! And I wonder what the people did while they were being taught cyber attack, they had to complain about that to the cyber crime branch of police!
