Sega Pass

Video game maker Sega also reeled this month from a hack that exposed names, birth dates, e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords of 1.3 million Sega Pass online network members. However, the video game maker added that none of the stolen passwords were stored in plain text and that credit card numbers and other personal payment card data were not affected by the breach.

Sega set about resetting all customer passwords and took Sega Pass offline. Sega advised users not to attempt to log into Sega Pass until the game was restored back online, and told users who relied on the same Sega Pass login credentials for other accounts to immediately change their passwords.

Details of the breach remain unclear. However, the hacker group LulzSec, thought to have been behind the attack, later denied it was involved.
