Chinese hackers have long specialized in writing trojans and other malicious software to steal accounts from MMORPGs (massively multi-player online role-playing games). The people over at MapleStory have had enough and are starting to block IP addresses from China:
According to AsiaSoft Online, the game’s publisher and regional distributor, the game has 87 million accounts worldwide, with2 million accounts from Singapore alone.
AsiaSoft marketing director Ng Kok Khwang said the online attacks took place in August. “We were under attack by Chinese hackers from China, and we have since blocked IP addresses from China and are monitoring the situation,” Mr Ng said.
Too much money, not enough enforcement…MapleStory drops the hammer!
