“In an indictment unsealed Tuesday, the four are accused of stealing proprietary software used to train Apache helicopter pilots as well as source code and technical specifications related to the Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) Xbox One gaming console and games including ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.'”  

“The FBI says the men conspired to “use, share and sell” the stolen information, and federal officials have already seized $620,000 in alleged proceeds from the scheme.”
