Club Nintendo and Ubisoft Security Breaches are the New Reality for Gamers

Hardcore Gamer: These sites and services tend to make nice juicy targets for hackers, and the ubiquitous nature of these things means most serious gamers probably have their personal information stored in at a least a couple of different gaming company's sites. Since so many of these companies require personal information in order to makes an account, it falls to them to keep our information safe and secure if we are going to keep trusting them with it.

A pain in the ass when some little hacker(s) decides to DDOS the server. Just imagine a event happening similar to the PSN outage in 2011. Twenty-four days of your games being utterly useless.
