Now Sega Pass users are hit by nasty hackers

18 June 2011

segapasslogo Another day and another games company has had its servers stripped of customer info by evil hackers. This time it’s Sega Pass – Sega have reported that email addresses and dates of birth have been half-inched by the cyber-crooks. Thankfully, no credit card details were obtained by the evil thieves, who should be rounded up and made to drink liquid nails.

In an email to users of Sega Pass, Sega said: “Over the last 24 hours we have identified that unauthorised entry was gained to our Sega Pass database. We immediately took the appropriate action to protect our consumers' data and isolate the location of the breach. We have launched an investigation into the extent of the breach of our public systems.”

Sega say that they have reset all passwords and have advised users to change their log-in details on other accounts they have where they use the same log-in details. Notorious hacker squad Lulz Security, who have been fairly busy lately, have denied any involvement in this one.

    I reckon they did it themselves. Never heard of Sega Pass, and a quick google seems to just have the news headlines about it. Conclusion? They're jumping on the Sony/Nintendo hacking bandwagon to get some free publicity for their little-known service/product.
