“Nathan Leroux, 20, of Bowie, Maryland, has admitted taking part in an international hacking and intellectual property theft conspiracy, the FBI announced on Tuesday.

Leroux has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit computer intrusions and criminal copyright infringement for his role in the theft of information from the networks of Microsoft and video game companies such as the Valve Corporation, Zombie Studios and Epic Games.

The data stolen by the man and his co-conspirators includes technical specifications and other information on Microsoft’s Xbox One console (before it was released) and the company’s Xbox Live system, pre-released versions of games developed by Epic Games and Activision, and even an Apache software simulator developed for the US army by Zombie Studios.”
