SEGA has been hacked, Oh My

Sega LogoSega has unwillingly joined the ill-fated list of companies who have been vulnerable to being hacked. The company’s web portal, Sega Pass, was attacked sometime last Thursday which has comprised the accounts of around 1.29 million users. What has been taken you may ask; well the list includes usernames, birth-dates, passwords, real names, and email addresses. Sega has stated that financial information such as credit/debit card information has not been taken but it may be wise for any users of that service to be mindful of your financial statements online even after you change Sega Pass account information.

Sega has taken the service offline until they resolve the vulnerability in Sega Pass. There is, currently, no ETA on when the issue will be resolved and when services will be restored.
