Unexpof writes “A man has been arrested by the British Police Central e-Crime Unit (PCeU) accused of stealing the usernames and passwords from players of the RuneScape MMORPG. Security experts report that this is one of the first occasions when a Brit has been apprehended for “virtual robbery”, although incidents have happened in the past. For instance, the CEO of the sci-fi trading game Eve Online stole 200 billion “kredits”, which he then used as a deposit on a real-world house, and in October last year a Japanese woman was arrested by police after allegedly hacking her virtual husband “to death”.
