Chinese Hackers Target Video Games for Cheating

For the past five years, hackers inside China have been breaking into American video game makers’ systems, collecting proprietary source code in an ambitious effort to crack the games for free use and to develop tools to cheat them, according to research by the counter threat unit at Dell SecureWorks, a security firm that was acquired by Dell in 2011. In several cases, researchers say, amateur Chinese hackers have proven themselves even more stealthy and sophisticated than their military counterparts.
