In South Korea, people whose
identities were stolen and used to register accounts on Lineage
and Lineage II
plan to take legal
action against NCsoft. Despite the theft not originating with NCsoft, lawyers appear to have found a convenient target
for the blame.
The lawsuit doesn't appear to be taking off, with only 100 plaintiffs paying the $1 fee to
join; the suit is being filed on behalf of more than 230,000 people. It looks to be more scare-tactics than a valid
lawsuit, but with $230m at stake, if it gets going it may become frightening indeed.
