MapleStory 16 year old boy hacked 36,000,000 NX


Title: MapleStory Player – 16 year old boy hacked 36,000,000 NX

A 16 year old Japan Maplestory player hacked into Nexon Japan’s billing system and managed to send himself 36,000,000 NXcash to his account with only spending 7,000 Yen (which is about 31 USD). When a security employee checked the access logs that where on the billing server, he saw that unauthorised access has been made and immediately informed authorities.

Once the police had tracked down the boy his location, they were on his doorstep within 24 hours to make his arrest.

The boy explains that he wanted to obtain a special type of item with Gachapon but was upset that he still did not get the item after spending a large amount of cash.

“I think this is really embarrassing for Nexon because their systems keep on getting compromised by juniors. First an 11 grade Israeli, now an 16 year old high school student, what’s next?” said xXlowongXx, a Lv. 78 Broan Hermit.
