Security for virtualized datacentres

Take Two Interactive, the publisher behind the Grand Theft Auto series, has been ordered to hand over documents by New York District Attorneys.

A Grand jury investigating the "hot coffee" cheat has issued two subpoenas demanding documents relating to the hidden x-rated scenes.

Take Two wrote in a statement to investors: "The company has not been advised that it or any specific individual is presently a target of the investigation."

But investigators are concerned with "the knowledge of the company's officers and directors regarding the creation, inclusion and programming of hidden scenes", the statement said. They're also after details about the firm's submissions to censors, financial bumf, and human resources records.

Take Two says it is cooperating fully with the New York investigation. Los Angeles DAs are in the process of suing Take Two and its developer Rockstar for the indiscreet scenes.

New York Senator and sceptered guardian of all that is virtuous Hilary Clinton called for a federal investigation last year. Earlier this month Take Two duly got its telling off from the Federal Trade Commission
