Hacker Holds Video Game Hostage

A player of the popular MMO Runes of Magic has hacked the game's databases, made demands of its German operators and is effectively holding the personal details of its users hostage.

In a fit of indignant rage, user augustus87 apparently took it upon himself to attack the servers of the game's Western operator (it was created in Taiwan), Frogster. Having claimed to have access to the account names and passwords of 3.5 million users, he is threatening to release this information gradually to the public unless his demands are met.

The story is too old to be commented.

How can you guys not recognize Alan Rickman? For shame...

Megaton2805d ago

Sad day when people don't recognize Die Hard villains.

Firstly, the hacker is an idiot. Everyone now knows his username and this guy is easily trackable by the Police.

Secondly, Alan Rickman >>>>>> Chuck Norris.

dude, Chuck Norris demolishes everything!

in his own words;

"Alan who?"
"Oh, I just ate him for breakfast!"

Chuck Norris got his butt handed to him on a plate by Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee's kung-fu crap would not help against Hans Gruber who would just shoot him dead or blow him up with a roof full of C4.

Given the fact that Bruce Willis defeats Alan Rickman, that there is already 3 people who annihilate the puss formally known as Chuck Norris, who coincidently is idolised only by kids who have never seen a real movie.

Shouldn't use Norton A/V exhibit 1204 million.

For real PC security, in a lightweight package use FREE Microsoft Security Essentials.

Germans got pwned again, like back in 45'.

Holding hostage letters and numbers now are we? What a low life. Oops shouldn't have said that now he is going to take hostage my N4G account and demand a apology letter.
