Eve Online Source code leaked

Piracy is all fun and games in EVE online, that is until someone pirates your source code. Reportedly, EVE's source code has been leaked onto the internet via torrent, though some claim that someone merely just decompiled a copy of the game they bought themselves.

The community manager of EVE Online's forums had this to say about the scandal:

"While the EVE client is distributed by us we do not allow decompiling it. Anyone found distributing or discussing decompiled client code will face an in game ban. This thread only remains to inform everyone of this decision and not post about it again."

It also seems CCP is seeding the torrent themselves, banning any IP address that happens to have a correlating account on their servers.

In lieu of all the other scandals this game has had, this seems pretty damn funny.
