Nintendo website hacked

13 June 2011

nintendo Begun, the console hacking war has. Nintendo has joined Sony's woes with a big phishing warning now displayed on the Nintendo homepage. The warning declares: "European Nintendo website phishing possibility" and further text notes they are checking for a possible phishing attempt on the site. Quite how a phishing attempt would result in the website being closed down (stars catalogue is also down at the moment) isn't explained and it seems more likely they are using the word "phishing" as being hacked is a scary word in the console world these days.

    How much overtime do you reckon Microsoft engineers are putting in to prevent the same on their network? Or would they tell us?

    Would be funny if MS was the only one able to resist these hacking attempts.

    So how many people also think that these hacks have been occuring for years, but the endearing plight of Sony's hack and goodwill toward them from the Sony fanbois have made other companies imagine that these hacks will afford them free publicity and kudos for handling the situation in an adult manner (i.e. better than Sony). If i were to convey to my superiors exactly how many hack attempts were made to our webservers, their eye sockets would immediately prolapse.

    I think MS leave their website management to Apache Communications.

What do you think?
