I guess sometimes dedicated servers aren’t enough, because an enterprising group of gamers decided to compromise a server to get their Black Ops multiplayer kicks.

Unfortunately, said server belonged to a Radiology practice which apparently contained the details of anything up to 231,400 or so patients – names, diagnosis codes, phone numbers and other information. It seems our server jacking chancers were more interested in shooting each other in the face than grabbing the information on the network – and on the bright side (if there is a bright side) no payment details were stored there, so at least they couldn’t go off and rent about six hundred dedicated servers.

This one gets my nomination for Strangest Story of the Day…
