As of late yesterday, Sega Pass system on sega.com has been hacked and some info has been leaked. Sega has been taking the necessary precautions and the following E-Mail has been sent out to all who post in the Sega forums.
As you may be aware, the SEGA Pass system has been offline since yesterday, Thursday 16 June.
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.
We have identified that a subset of SEGA Pass members emails addresses, dates of birth and encrypted passwords were obtained. To stress, none of the passwords obtained were stored in plain text.
Please note that no personal payment information was stored by SEGA as we use external payment providers, meaning your payment details were not at risk from this intrusion.
If you use the same login information for other websites and/or services as you do for SEGA Pass, you should change that information immediately.
We have also reset your password and all access to SEGA Pass has been temporarily suspended.
Additionally we recommend you please take extra caution if you should receive suspicious emails that ask for personal or sensitive information.
Therefore please do not attempt to login to SEGA Pass at present, we will communicate when the service becomes available.
We sincerely apologise for this incident and regret any inconvenience caused.
We are contacting all our members with these recommendations.
If you have any further questions please contact SEGA customer support on email@example.comAd:

SegaBITS is next. We'll soon know all about George's scandalous cyber-sex-life.
Can't someone put these kids to bed without supper.
Man, can someone make sure that my cyber sex life never makes it public?
Ok this hacking bs is getting old. I got the email from SEGA telling me about this. :/
Why are the site hackers lashing out at nearly every electronics related site on the net now and in such high frequency. I can understand a curiosity hack breach every once in a while, but multiple hacks being announced nearly on a daily basis? This is dumb.
^The reason is the whole Sony hacking thing, some douchebag started it and because he got so much media attention all the little pesant 'me too' cock suckers desided to copy cat him.
Happens with everything, it'll blow over and by this time next year no one will even remember it happened.
I totally agree with you guys,especially Sharky I am really sick of this crap already.
