Mafia + Hackers=Mackers?

From the dept of oh-s...t (courtesy BBC):

The boom in cyber crime is forcing criminals to go to great lengths to recruit skilled hackers, says a report. Some criminal gangs are paying students while they study to ensure they have a pool of tech-savvy workers to call on, says the report from McAfee. Others are cashing in on the glamour of the hi-tech world to tempt youngsters into embarking on a life of crime. McAfee said children as young as 14 years old were being targeted by some criminal gangs.
