Two Businessmen Charged With Video Game Industry Hacking Arrested in Malaysia

Two Malaysian businessmen accused of collaborating with Chinese hackers to gain profit from attacks on video game industry in the US have been arrested in Malaysia, the US Justice Department announced on Wednesday.

According to the DoJ, the cyberattacks “facilitated the theft of source code, software code signing certificates, customer account data, and valuable business information”.

“Some of these criminal actors believed their association with the PRC provided them free license to hack and steal across the globe,” said Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin in a statement.
