SANS - Survey on application security programs

A Japanese woman faces a charge of "illegal access" after coughing to using her ex-boyfriend's username and password to access online game Lineage, the Mainichi Daily News reports.

The vengeful thirtysomething allegedly binned clothes and weapons which her former squeeze had spent time accumulating online. For her trouble, the feds have reported her to Fukushima District Public Prosecutors Office on a "violating a law banning illegal access" rap.

The estranged pair met online via Lineage in 2003 and began a short-lived, real-world relationship. The alleged outrage took place some time in April last year. Police quote the perpetrator as admitting: "I did it as revenge for breaking up with me." ®
