Sega though were hacked

1 min read


Earlier today I posted an article stating that Xbox Live wasn’t hacked but unfortunately the same cannot be said for the guys over at Sega (everytime I hear that I can’t get the SEEEEGGGAAA sound out of my head).

We heard reports on Friday that their site had been hacked and earlier on Sunday Sega came out and confirmed that they were indeed hacked and 1,290,755 customers details have been obtained.

The data that was obtained was the Sega Pass members name, encrypted password, birthdate and email address which really isn’t that bad if you think about it.

An email address and date of birth isn’t the most revealing thing about you and Sega have also confirmed that no financial information was stored on the system so they can at least be sure that that wasn’t taken.

It’s not strengthening network security but at the moment all these corporate networks just look like they are ripe for the picking.

Has the spate of hackings made you a little weary about conducting business or pleasure online moving forward?
