Title: Nintendo Server Hacked

Nintendo reports that there was an unauthorized intrusion into its American server, but thankfully, no user information was leaked. LulzSec, the same hacker group that just a week ago hacked Sony BMG and Sony Entertainment to reveal that Sony stored over a million users' information in text files that were easily accessible after a simple SQL injection.

LulzSec claimed that they only hacked Nintendo for the "lulz", but didn't do any damage to them as they had with Sony. They stated on their Twitter:

Quote
"Re: Nintendo, we just got a config file and made it clear that we didn't mean any harm. Nintendo had already fixed it anyway. <3 them!"


Considering that Nintendo was so quick to patch security holes, whereas Sony decides to keep its customers' information in a text file that could be retrieved all with one SQL injection, I wouldn't feel very safe right now as a Sony customer.

I cant wait for xbox to get hacked, its just a matter of time, then xbox will get a feeling of what they were doing to ps3 users although microsoft will probably do nothing like give away free games like sony did. Maybe nintendo should give us all some games like mario!! <3 MARIO!! ;D

Microsoft are fine, people are indifferent to them, sony were hated by many.

I find it funny that people seem to overlook that there is a HUGE chance the hackers are running off of an operating system made by them... Meaning if they hacked them it would be merely to point out holes. Just sayin'

What I don't get is why people actually waste there time hacking into servers because if we are perfectly honest, there isn't really much point sitting at a computer for straight hours hacking into servers when you could be sat at a computer playing games! ;D

Not at all, I dont like this kid, he can go die in a ditch for all I care. Not trying to curse anything, but after the attacks on sony, you wouldthink all the orhter gaming networks would beef up their security.
