Japanese video game maker Sega has become the latest victim of ubiquitous cyber attacks in which information belonging to 1.3 million customers was swiped, Reuters reports.
In a statement released Sunday, Sega said names, birth dates, email addresses and encrypted passwords of Sega Pass online network members had been compromised; credit card numbers appear to be safe.
No one’s has yet publicly claimed credit for the Sega breach, but mischief makers LulzSec — who previously took responsibility for hacking the websites of the CIA, InfraGard and Aussie web host Distribute.IT — unexpectedly offered to track down and punish the Sega hackers.
According to Reuters, the group tweeted, “Sega — contact us. We want to help you destroy the hackers that attacked you. We love the Dreamcast, these people are going down.”
