Games maker Sega has been the latest victim of hackers, who are said to have stolen the personal data of about 1,29-million users.
Although the theft is believed to have been from the web site of the company’s European business, so far the only statement from the company has been in Japanese.
The stolen details are not believed to contain credit card information, although they probably do include names, dates of birth, e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords.
An attempt to elicit more information from the sega.com site proved fruitless this morning, with both the Forums and Support features offline.
The Sega Pass link comes up with the following message:
“SEGA Pass is going through some improvements so is currently unavailable for new members to join or existing members to modify their details including resetting passwords.
“We hope to be back up and running very soon.
“Thank you for your patience”
