Interesting. This is actually believable in a way. Hackers being lazy I can believe.

Ah sorry. I should have said H4><0rs not Hackers. Most people that write virus's come into the first group. I am a hacker, but would never write a virus and don't try to compromise systems.

From a technical point of view I haven't got a hope of understanding that enough to understand why it's wrong. However, I can be sufficiently irritated with them for using the phrase "malicious hackers" four times in a short article that it probably doesn't matter.

Tsk.
