Source: http://habrahabr.ru/post/212307/ Hello everyone, apparently, in Belarus, WoT tank theft is taken very, very seriously. A criminal investigation was opened in the Belarus’ Brest region in a case of a World of Tanks account theft. WoT player, a 30 year old man from the town of Pruzhany contacted local police and said that his WoT account was stolen. He said to the police that his account contained an IS-8 tank and he spent like 1,2 mil BYR (cca 91 Euro) on that account. After the report, the police contacted Wargaming, that helped them find the thief, because the account was continuously in use. The account was also blocked as a result. According to the police, the “hacker” managed to steal the account using the owner’s e-mail, because the password was really simple to guess. Either way, according to the report, the “hacker” was charged with the crime of “illegal access to computer information”.
