A few weeks after the hack of Playstation Network (the online service for PlayStation 3), now it is the turn for Sega to be the victim of an attack. Indeed, the service SEGA Pass is unavailable since June 16, 2011. This follows the theft of personal data of 1.29 million users. The names, email addresses, dates of birth and the crypted passwords have been stolen. No banking information has yet been hacked.
After the attack that prompted Sony to close the Playstation Network for several weeks, many other companies have been victims of intrusions. Codemasters, Bethesda, Epic Games, Nintendo were, in turn, pirated.
