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.
