A man has been arrested for attacking the Web site of the video game
rating board in March this year using a similar method of cyber attack
that knocked out dozens of Korean and U.S. sites in the past three days.
Two accomplices were indicted without detention, according to police.
Choi, 39, the chief executive of an agency that helps computer game
software developers get ratings from the Game Rating Board, is accused
of buying a hacking program from an accomplice, Yoo, 33, an ethnic
Korean in China, for 450,000 won ($351).
Choi based the server in Shanghai and used it to paralyze the homepage
of the ratings board, according to the police.
