Hamlet, some Asian MMOs put hard limits on how many hours a day an account can be used, as a sort of counter-measure against MMO 'addiction'. Maybe the 'hack' was a matter of bypassing that limit.

I'd bet that the game companies could defeat these practices, say by having diminishing returns on mining rewards the longer an account is logged in. But the fact is, these are accounts paid for, and cost them zero in customer support; and the farmers have to buy new accounts every so often when they get nuked for gold selling. They are probably a major revenue center.
