SEGA Pass hack leaves 1.29 million users at risk

If you didn’t know, hackers have hacked SEGA’s SEGA Pass service and obtained passwords of some users. How many users had stolen information? It seems the number that SEGA is throwing around is 1.29 million users. The good part? They only got access to emails, birthdays. No credit card information was obtained.

“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.”- Yoko Nagasawa

SEGA reassures users that they didn’t store their passwords in plain text files, that they used some sort of encryption. No date on when the SEGA Pass service will be back up.

    Kinda not right to use LulzSec's avatar as the banner for this report, as they had nothing to do with it. They came out on Twitter stating they didn't do it simply because they love the Dreamcast and even offered to help Sega find out who exactly did it.

    Changed the picture to avoid confusion.

    At risk of what? My CC info isn't on there and my password is different from most sites I visit. I think they're overreacting now.

    You are not 1.29 million people.
