Goner Virus Authors Teens

'The teens [who created the Goner virus], ages 15 and 16, are high school students in the northern city of Nahariya, said Meir Zohar, head of the police computer crime squad.'

People really take the wrong thing away from this information. It doesn't mean these teenagers are extra smart somehow... the law of mediocrity applies. (Hmmmm... must write that one up.) If teens can create such a devastating email virus, that means serious holes in our system that even people who are almost children can exploit, not that today's teens are any smarter then before.
