Nintendo has confirmed that its US website has been hacked. A group called Lulz Security, or LulzSec, gained access to one of the site's servers, copying and then publishing a configuration file.
Last week LulzSec also hacked Sony Pictures' website
, again publishing user information online.
Thankfully, Nintendo's server contained no customer information - a fact confirmed by both the hackers and the hacked.
In an email sent to Reuters
, Nintendo stated:
'The server contained no consumer information,
' Nintendo said in a statement to Reuters
. 'The protection of our customer information is our utmost priority...We constantly monitor our security.
'Re: Nintendo, we just got a config file and made it clear that we didn't mean any harm,
' said a LulzSec Twitter
post regarding the matter. 'Nintendo had already fixed it anyway. <3 them'
