ntendo representatives announced today that the company was recently the target of an online attack. While worrisome that this attacked allegedly occurred a few weeks ago, and Nintendo’s only now coming forward with the information, the silver lining to the entire ordeal is that the hackers didn’t manage to escape with any useful information.
The bad news: A group of hackers have infiltrated a U.S. Nintendo server. The worse news: It’s the same group of hackers that have been on a digital rampage as of late, defacing sites from PBS, Sony, and 2600 in short order.
The good news? Nintendo’s breach seems to be completely controlled and even the hackers themselves are admitting that they didn’t manage to pilfer anything good.
