Nintendo Website Server Gets Hacked Temporarily

Posted Jun 6, 2011

Over the weekend one of Nintendo’s website servers got hacked temporarily. The hack attack was less severe than the hack that affected Sony’s PlayStation Network. The hack that Nintendo was hit with did not lead to the leak of sensitive information or cause any operational damage.

The hacker group Lulzsec claimed responsibility to breaking into some of Sony’s websites and stole customer information. The same group posted data on the Internet claiming that it was one of Nintendo’s “server configuration files.” Lulzsec said that they were not targeting Nintendo but they said that they hope Nintendo plugs the gap.
