Dutch police have captured a hacker (not pictured at right) who has stolen around 50,000 credit card numbers and racked up $2 million in damage along his merry purchasing way. He also hacked into Valve's servers and purloined credit card numbers, and also accessed Activisions' computers, stealing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars  while it was still in development.

According to the Dutch Ministry of the Interior, the 20 year old hacker (Madoxx) burned "13 million Euros playing poker online and shopping for notebooks, flat screens and MP3 players" before being caught.

The criminal was collared by a Dutch police unit called Team High Tech Crime, coincidentally, also the name of our company softball team.

MaddoxX is behind bars and will not be stealing any more PC games until they are ready to be stolen.
