Video game maker Sega recently announced that their database was hacked, exposing the sensitive information of over a million customers, according to a media report.
The company’s Sega Pass site was hacked, and the subjects acquired customer’s passwords, e-mail address, birth date and names.
This has all been confirmed by numerous media outlets who have spoken with the Japanese manufacturer. Sega informed users of the breach through an e-mail that was sent out this past Friday.
In their letter to customers, Sega ensured that all passwords were encrypted and not in plain text, and no payment information was stolen in the attack.
The company still insists that anyone who uses their Sega Pass user name and password on other sites immediately change their passwords.
Sega has temporarily disabled the website while they reset the passwords and investigate the incident.
