Warez (pronounced "war-ehs" is an infamous village in southern Mexico that
was once a training camp for CIA counter-insurgency computer terrorism
recruits. Furnished with the highest end computer hacking equipment by the
US Government, under the direction of Oliver North, they went rogue when the
program was discontinued during the Iran-Contra scandal. After their
payroll was cut, the village, ironically, hired itself out to international
terrorist concerns to perform paid attacks on US commerce. This situation
was exacerbated by an abortive attempt to invade Warez by Puerto Rican
commandos under the direction of the US military in 1997. This has since
been known as the "Bay of Warez" disaster.
