Remember the incident in Korea recently where MapleStory Korea’s account database was hacked? If you haven’t, read this link. Despite Nexon Korea giving handsome benefits to all the affected players and the management issuing a public apology (below), the police in Korea summoned the company’s CEO (extreme right guy) for investigation. Nexon has applied to delay the summon, and both sides now will fix a later date.
The Korean government in recent years took a very much pro-active role in managing the booming online gaming industry, and Nexon apparently broke a couple of the iron-tight laws with regards to personal data in cyberspace. I am not guessing a drastic thing such as jail term, but perhaps game companies now will finally give more funds to the security departments.
