+ - Video poker bug reaped rewards for player and CFAA charge->

JoeyRox writes: Over the course of playing $12 million worth of video poker, Las Vegas resident John Kane stumbled onto a firmware bug in IGT's "Game King" machines that allowed him to cash out for 10x the amount of his winnings. John and friend took advantage of the vulnerability to the tune of $429,945. John's friend was arrested by U.S. marshals and charged with violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, but a federal magistrate ruled that the law doesn't apply and recommended dismissal. The case is currently being argued in a U.S. District Court.
