Man steals MMO source code blackmails original creators with clone

first_imgIn what seems like the actions of those obnoxious players we all come across when playing online games, 24-year-old Dutch national Anil Kheda allegedly stole the source code of text-based MMO Outwar, created a clone of the game, then used it to blackmail the original creators.Supposedly, Kheda and company hacked Outwar’s servers, obtaining an unspecified amount of the game’s source code, granted themselves in-game points, and restored previously banned accounts. The hack and subsequent modifications to the game caused Outwar to be shut down for two weeks over the course of a nine month period resulting in, as the indictment states, “over $100,000 in lost revenues, lost wages, lost hosting costs, long-term loss of business, as well as the loss of exclusive use of their proprietary source code, which it had invested approximately $1.5 million in creating.” A federal grand jury indicted Kheda with charges of extortion and hacking.After allegedly stealing the source code, the indictment states Kheda created a clone of the Outwar, dubbed Outcraft, which gained around 10,000 players — compared to Outwar’s over 75,000 — and earned Kheda around $10,000 in profits.The indictment also mentions emails sent between Outwar’s developer Rampid Interactive and Kheda, in which Kheda asks Rampid to either restore his banned account or pay him $1500, or else he’d hack the servers once again.If convicted, Kheda could face a maximum of five years in prison for the conspiracy charge and two years for the extortion charge.via Seacoastonlinelast_img read more

Russian court rules people living with HIV can adopt children

first_imgRussia’s Constitutional Court has ruled that people living with HIV (PLHIV) can adopt children. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The court ruled that a person – of either sex – who already had children already living with them could adopt them regardless of the adult’s HIV status. But the ban would still apply to PLHIV trying to adopt children from an orphanage.A couple brought the case to the court after multiple authorities refused to allow them to adopt their surrogate child. They refused because the adoptive mother was living with HIV.Authorities told the couple allowing the adoption ‘would not match the interests of the child’.But the court ruled it was unconstitutional to ban PLHIV from adopting children. The court ruled HIV/AIDS was not a threat because it ‘cannot be transmitted by the mere presence of a person with HIV’.The Moscow Times newspaper argued the court ruling comes amidst efforts in Russia to reduce stigma around HIV. It said the decision comes as part of ‘of a broader state strategy to combat the epidemic and reduce stigma’. GAYSTARNEWS- ‘Russia’s strategy to eradicate HIV focuses on working with at-risk groups, spreading awareness and fighting discrimination,’ it wrote.What about same-sex couples?Despite its efforts to combat the worsening HIV epidemic, Russia still banned a HIV information website aimed at men who have sex with men under its ‘gay propaganda’ law.The new adoption laws will also not extend to same-sex couples.In 2014, Russia banned the adoptions of children to people in countries that recognize same-sex marriage.‘Adoptions can be carried out by members of either sex with the exception of… people in a union of two people of the same sex that has been registered as a married according to the legislation of their country… and also unmarried people in such countries,’ the decree reads.Got a news tip?
