Hacker given in-game death sentence
A character controlled by a hacker who used exploits to dominate online game Guild Wars 2 has been put to death in the virtual world. The character, called DarkSide, was stripped then forced to leap to their death from a high bridge. The death sentence was carried out after players gathered evidence about the trouble the hacker had caused. This helped the game's security staff find the player, take over their account and kill them off.
