Young people with an interest in computers can easily be seduced by online gangs, an online security consultant warns.

The comments follow the case of a teenager who has admitted six charges relating to introducing hidden programs into more than 1 million computers worldwide, causing an estimated economic loss of $26 million.

Police say Owen Thor Walker, 18, was paid $40,000 to develop the software used.

Computer security analyst Brett Moore says though it is unusual for a New Zealander to be involved in such a high-profile scam, online crime is commonplace.

Mr Moore says criminal gangs are treating the internet as just another tool to extort money.

"This sort of thing just goes on constantly … The old mafias and organised crime gangs are just moving to new territory, using the same tricks to get more money."
