Hackers Attack Nintendo

Nintendo 0

Dr Herbert West (1357769) writes "From WSJ:
Nintendo said today said Sunday that a server for its U.S. unit's website had been hacked into but that no company or customer information was compromised.

The hacker group Lulzsec, which allegedly was behind other breaches of Sony websites earlier this week, claimed responsibility.

Lulzsec posted a server configuration file as proof of its involvement yet said it wasn't targeting Nintendo. "We just got a config file and made it clear that we didn't mean any harm," the group said this morning via its Twitter. "Nintendo had already fixed it anyway.
The attack comes as Nintendo this week launches its new online service for its 3DS hand-held game machine."
