Lulz Security claims to have hacked Nintendo’s website

3DS Gaming Nintendo PS Vita

The hacking group Lulz Security has claimed to have hacked Nintendo’s website. The group posted evidence of this attack on Twitter today which shows (through tech stuff I don’t understand) that they have found their way around Nintendo’s security. Nothing so far has been stolen, and personal information hasn’t been stolen, but it’s a reminder that Sony is not the only company that has the potential to be hacked.

Nintendo doesn’t have an online system like PlayStation Network where users are required to register using a password. However, Nintendo uses Club Nintendo to allow users to register products. This service requires an email and password, so that information could potentially be exposed. Nintendo doesn’t store credit card information (you have to enter your credit card number every time you make a purchase on their online store) so it doesn’t seem like that information could be stolen, although I’m not an expert on that.

    Any hacks on Nintendo need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. No one should praise these idiots. Nintendo IS gaming. If it wasn’t for them, the gaming industry would have died in the early 80s and never have blossomed into what we have today. FUCK THESE STUPID HACKERS. Go back to screwing with Sony or MS.

      You must be a dumbass… nobody should hack Nintendo, but it’s okay to hack everything else? With your logic, “BILL GATES USHERED IN THE MODERN COMPUTING ERA, HACKERZ DON F*CK WIT HIM !1!” and “WITHOUT SONY’S SUPPORT AND DEVELOPMENT OF BLU-RAY AND DVD, SH1T WOULDN’T EVEN EXIST AS;DLFKJ !!”
      Get off Nintendo’s penis… they’re a company, just cause you got a Wii doesn’t mean you’re a valued Nintendo team member, it means they made money off of you chump. Hackers shouldn’t hack at all, cause they’re stopping me using the product I paid money for…
