The New York Times reports that Kim Jong-Il has resorted to gold farming in MMOs, by infiltrating popular Asian MMOs like Dungeon Fighter Online, to fund... wait for it... nuclear war:
Mr. Chung said the hackers, all graduates of North Korea’s elite science universities, were dispatched from two places: the state-run Korea Computer Center in Pyongyang and the Korea Neungnado General Trading Company. The company, he said, reports to a shadowy Communist Party agency called Office 39, which gathers foreign hard currency for Mr. Kim through drug trafficking, counterfeiting, arms sales and other illicit activities.Apparently, this, uh, monetary effort has raised $6M, which is about enough money to produce a tiny nuclear warhead and have twenty-four North Koreans throw it at us.
