Game modding leads to cybercrime...this sounds a lot like playing D&D leads satanism.

And they have an insanely low sample size of 23 people. They provide no information on the questions asked or any methodology.

Sounds like someone had a theory and ensured the results matched the theory.

Lets not give them that much credit here, this is nowhere near the level of a "theory" this can barely even be considered a hypothesis by scientific standards.

That would explain the 666 sided dice they always carry around.

Basically, what they are saying is that anybody with any knowledge of software is a budding cyber criminal. If you use the built in formulae in excel (cheats) you are a criminal. If you use macros in word you are definately a criminal. Even if you use ctrl+c or v or x you might be become a criminal (sometimes cheats are that simple). And, of course, anybody with any formal software knowledge should be locked up.
Ludicrous.
I have used cheats in a couple of games and modding in 1. I don't see any connection between them and trojans or dDoS.
