    Finally, they have figured out the enemies of the internet, computer virus hackers.

    In almost all cases, virus writers were computer-obsessed males between the ages of 14 to 34 years, he said.

    "They have a chronic lack of girlfriends, are usually socially inadequate and are drawn compulsively to write self-replicating codes. It's a form of digital graffiti to them," Hruska said.
