Nokia pledges to pursue N-Gage crack creators

Nokia today vowed to "aggressively pursue" the people behind the successful attempt to crack its N-Gage handheld console-cum-phone's copy protection mechanism.

A Nokia spokesman told The Register the company had already begun working with ISPs and law enforcement agencies to track down the perpetrators.

He also said the company would attempt to shut down web sites posting the crack software - a move reminiscent of the movie industry's pursuit a few years back of anyone hosting the DeCSS DVD cracking code.

"We are treating this very seriously," he said. "As soon as we saw these claims posted on the Internet, we started to investigate."
