Websites and forums which provide cheat codes and modifications for video games are making it increasingly easy for young people to develop criminal skills and become involved in hacking chat rooms, a report by the U.K.'s National Crime Agency (NCA) has said.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have to look in the Quake 3 source code to see where Id hid all those stolen CC numbers.

Modding is a gateway drug, people - first you're coding a rapid-fire explosive shotgun, next you're hacking into GCHQ.

Just say no!

Wonder what this means for those of us who only play the mods instead of make them..

Minor accomplices?  I suppose it depends on the age of the player.  They're stating that it's "young people" developing these criminal skills, after all.  That rules me right out.
