Flappyhead: I'm not slogging through that to figure out what the hell is going on.

From what I could gather, a hacker sold a bunch of credit card numbers to a guy, but that guy put the numbers on a flash drive that was infected with a virus. The virus encrypted the numbers and would only be released with a key that could be obtained by delivering the electronic money to a specific location within an MMO. Unfortunately Russian mobsters got involved and then a bunch of jihadists and before you know it grandma here is traipsing through British Colombia with a Claymore Mine strapped to her chest.

HotIgneous Intruder: Serious questions:
So how do the kidnappers convert the bitcoin into real money?
So how long before Interpol and the CIA cracks down hard on this black internet nonsense?

I knew it wouldn't be long before someone brought race into this.
