Excellent, our country is falling to bits and two kids have a better job than about 90% of people here.

"Up to 100 gamers aged 18" That's a teenage adult.

Yet both the pic here and the one in the article show 10 year old kids. Way to be misleading.

I'm sure they're not playing video games as part of the job. They'll actually learn stuff relevant to computer security.
