Runescape continues to get millions of people playing it so it stands to reason that there might be some underhanded folks out there who might want to take control of other people's accounts for that game. Over the holiday weekend, the game's developer/publisher Jagex announced that a person who allegedly tried to do just that was arrested in the UK.
In its press release, Jagex said that an unnamed 23 year old was arrested on November 24 in the UK city of Avon & Somerset by the local Police Central e-crime Unit. Jagex worked with the police to find evidence that the person allegedly had hacked into "a number of RuneScape gaming accounts". Jagex said that more investigations of this type are underway in the US with the assistance of the FBI.
