Or, more accurately, Al Kheda, an out of control MMORPG gamer from the Netherlands.
Quote:
A grand jury in New Hampshire has indicted a Dutch man for allegedly conspiring to hack into and disable servers belonging to Rampid Interactive, a company that hosts the MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) Outwar.

Anil Kheda, 24, was charged late Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire with one count of conspiring to commit computer intrusion and one count of making extortionate interstate threats, the U.S. Department of Justice said.
IDG News Service was unable to contact Kheda for comment.

Kheda and his alleged co-conspirators, who are all Outwar players, accessed Rampid's computer servers without authorization between November 2007 and August 2008 and rendered Outwar unplayable for days at a time, the indictment alleged. Kheda and his co-conspirators also used their unauthorized access to alter user accounts, including restoring suspended player accounts and acquiring unearned game points, the DOJ said in a press release.
Quote:
If convicted, Kheda faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison on the conspiracy charge and two years in prison on the interstate threats charge.
