Hackers Attack Nintendo

Hackers Attack Nintendo Juro Osawa writes for the Wall Street Journal…

TOKYO—Nintendo Co. said Sunday that a server for its U.S. unit’s website had been hacked into but that no company or customer information was compromised, marking the first time the Japanese gaming giant has been targeted in widespread global hacking attacks.

The incident at Nintendo is extremely minor compared with the hacker attacks on rival Sony Corp.’s PlayStation Network and other online services since April that have led to a personal data breach involving more than 100 million user accounts. The Nintendo breach involved no sensitive information and hasn’t caused any damage to its operations or inconveniences for its customers, the company said.
