Why interactive games are sometimes dangerous

Welcome! I’ve found interesting news about 43 year old Japanese piano teacher suspected for her online husband from Maple Story. She can face 5 years of jail or a fine of up to 5,000 dollars for that terrible crime related to online interactive games.

Well, she was angry after the man, who was her-in-game-husband, abruptly broke off this interesting online relationship. After that, filled with fury women signed on to his profile with his identification data and deleted his avatar from Maple Story. She said later at police station -
“I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry,” she is being charged for “illegal access onto a computer and manipulating electronic data,”
not a murder of course, but in the world of online interactive games.

Her man, 33 years old office worker from Sapporo, far, far away in the Japan, after that incident called the police. He said that he “raised” his avatar for more than a year and then his ex-girlfriend or wife or whatever she was, deleted his account. For us, it’s important to hide our logins and password.
