Sega Hack Impacts 1.3 Million Customers

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.

The attack on Sega follows other recent significant web assaults targeting Citigroup, the International Monetary Fund and the Maryland-based Bethesda Softworks.

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.“
