If you’ve been playing Counter-Strike on the ESEA gaming network, you’ve been doing a lot more than tossing virtual hand grenades and firing virtual machine guns. You’ve been mining Bitcoins for an unnamed staffer inside the company that runs the network.

The mining started on April 13 and may have affected as many as 14,000 gamers.
