New Hampshire-based Seacoast Radiology sent out an alert to its patients explaining that their private information may have been compromised. The reason? Some folks hacked into the medical group's server to host a game of Call of Duty.

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. [The Register]

At my school I set up Halo 1 on one of the pc's in the computer lab, by the end of the period everybody in the room was playing a 16 man CTF game on Bloodgulch; and thats all we did for the next week. Pretty soon the teachers got fed up and told the tech director. After learning about it he made me give him a copy and started paying with us. Our director is pretty awesome.
