Damn teens!

The South Korean National Police Agency is warning internet users of free game downloads that could potentially be developed by insidious North Koreans waging cyber wars. Arirang News reports. The police allege free game software developed in North Korea has been distributed in South Korea and that infected computers can then launch DDoS attacks.

Independent intelligence analyst Matthew Aid, speaking to Voice of America, said, "What the North Koreans are doing is something akin to a honey trap for techno-crazed South Koreans. No teen will ever pass up an offer for free games online."

Damn teens! I knew they would bring down (South Korean) civilization!
