Submission + - Octopus Steals Pirates' Files, Creator Arrested (asahi.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Ikatako is a virus that spreads through Japanese P2P network winny aided by the pirates' lack of wit. Once downloaded and run, the virus sends their data to a central server and replaces it with cephalopod and cnidarian imagery.

However, Japanese police considered the files in Japanese Pirates' hard drives were more important than his manga depictions of octopods and other tentacled fauna. They charged him with property destruction of digital files, whatever that is supposed to mean.
