I wonder how often this happens to major corporations? It must be fairly often, but this has clearly been one of the bigger hacks of our lifetimes, second maybe only to the Citigroup hack about 3-4 years ago. This whole ordeal has cost Sony well over (point pinky to mouth a la Dr. Evil from Austin Powers) 100 million dollars.

Sony hasn't, but add Sega to the list

Dear XXXXX,

As you may be aware, the SEGA Pass system has been offline since yesterday, Thursday 16 June.

Over the last 24 hours we have identified that unauthorised entry was gained to our SEGA Pass database.

We immediately took the appropriate action to protect our consumers’ data and isolate the location of the breach. We have launched an investigation into the extent of the breach of our public systems.

We have identified that a subset of SEGA Pass members emails addresses, dates of birth and encrypted passwords were obtained. To stress, none of the passwords obtained were stored in plain text.

Please note that no personal payment information was stored by SEGA as we use external payment providers, meaning your payment details were not at risk from this intrusion.

If you use the same login information for other websites and/or services as you do for SEGA Pass, you should change that information immediately.

We have also reset your password and all access to SEGA Pass has been temporarily suspended.

Additionally we recommend you please take extra caution if you should receive suspicious emails that ask for personal or sensitive information.

Therefore please do not attempt to login to SEGA Pass at present, we will communicate when the service becomes available.

We sincerely apologise for this incident and regret any inconvenience caused.

We are contacting all our members with these recommendations.

If you have any further questions please contact SEGA customer support on csescalations@sega.com

I got that same email, didn't even realize SEGA Pass was a thing?

Anyway, LulzSec, the group responsible for many of the recent hacks you've heard about has offered to help FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE REASON.

"Sega - contact us," Lulz said in its Tweet to the video game developer. "We want to help you destroy the hackers that attacked you. We love the Dreamcast, these people are going down."

The answer is yes....or at least someone tried to gain entry to your account without your permission via a hack from another site.
