    Billions stolen in online robbery

    Space trading game Eve Online has suffered a virtual version of the credit crunch.

    One of the game's biggest financial institutions lost a significant chunk of its deposits as a huge theft started a run on the bank.

    One of the bank's controllers stole about 200bn kredits and swapped them for real world cash of £3,115.

    As news of the theft spread, many of the bank's customers rushed to remove their virtual cash.
