3 men seized for selling game-cheating software

THREE suspects were detained for selling maphack software on the Internet that allows buyers to cheat in online games, police said today.

The three suspects, surnamed Qin, Wang and Li, sold their game-cheating software for 1 million yuan (US$151,904) last year and will be charged of illegal business operation, police said.

The case came to light last December when Jiading District police got a tip-off that someone had designed a plug-in to hack an unidentified, popular network game, which enabled buyers to play the game with a full map. The plug-in had been sold online since August and brought damage to the host and other players, police said.

After weeks' detection, Qin and Wang were caught in Ningxia, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and in Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province on December 28. The third suspect Li was nabbed in Jishou, Hunan Province on January 11, police said.

More than 100,000 yuan of illegal income was confiscated in the crackdown.

Police encouraged local residents to report such crime to protect intellectual property rights.
