As many EVE players probably already know, there is an exploit within the game that has been used on a massive scale. However what many probably don't know is that this exploit has been in the game for about 4 years. Now I won't go into detail on how the exploit is performed. Suffice it to say it has generated well over 3 trillion ISK according to Scrapheap Challenge.
While this amount is roughly equal to the amount of ISK traded daily, that's a huge chump of change.

CCP games, the developer for EVE online, has started up an investigation and had meetings with the player elected officials known as the "Council of Stellar Management"(CSM). Some Q/A was released from this meeting and made known to the public.

Scrapheap Challenge is the website/forums where this info was posted..quite simply-its not the player.  70players or more have been banned.  Funny how things get "reported".

The figures and time length are of course quoted from the post on "scrapheap challenge" and in no way can they be verified.

Suffice to say the only real way to guage the extent of this exploit is how big and how long an effect it has on the eve market place. Everything else is nothing more than a guessimate.

Basically the player economy in EvE has been and will forever be tainted unless they wipe all coin and items including ships and starbases from the game. The only thing players can retain are their skills.
