Gamers hack medical server to host a call of duty black ops game

image-1156
At a hospital in New Hampshire an alert to all patient’s was sent out telling them that their medical info might be compromised as they had found unusual activity on one of their server’s. Funny thing is the unusual activity was a dedicated black ops server. Why would anyone go that far for a lag free game? It gets even weirder, they didn’t actually take ANY of the information already on the servers, now that’s true gaming spirit.

According to a spokesperson from the security company brought in by the medical group, the breach was discovered “after an admin noticed a loss of bandwidth.” It is believed that the hackers didn’t do anything other than abuse the servers to host Black Ops games, but a thorough investigation is being conducted
