Hackers breach Nintendo server, two months after Sony attack
Is this the work of lulzsec
Okay. And what justification do they claim to have this time?
The question is who fist? However, the answer is most likely money.
Ugh, this is getting annoying.
Strange how MS has not been hacked.
Give it time. Although you'd expect them to have the best security, being a software company.
Well they could be Xbox fanboys... but really Microsoft is the next logical step
Sorry Fishy but I disagree, I said this yesterday when this first broke ~ "On a side note ~ since Microsoft is probably the worst example of a company to use as having "perfectly secure software" why/how could people somehow believe the Xbox brand would be any different... Oh that's right, you can't, because it isn't." It should just be a matter of time for them to be affected as well. And as childish as it may seem to say, then wouldn't that make the hackers M$ fanboys because they aren't going after ALL "big name oppressive conglomerate corporations" as they claim to be?
I was just thinking that Nodoze. I guess they are afraid of MS.
nitnendo said they havent lost any data. So they are better than sony @ in this regard they are like it or not sony really embarrased themselves with how shittey there security was
Way to completely fail.
There are no sides to take here. This is not part of your meaningless competition.
what data information they could have lost friend codes lol On serious note this show no online network is safe enought really
Nothing was taken because Lulzsec didn't want to take anything. However, they posted a log of how they got into Nintendo's servers. So yeah, you fail.
Nintendo has no online gaming infrastructure so they have no data to lose. Their online service is pathetic and I doubt that many people have signed up for the nintendo store-front. Add to that, online multiplayer, what there is of it, is horrible on the Wii.
It's the competition of who lost the most data or whose security is shittier now? You're the very definition of "pathetic"! This is in no way good for the industry and our beloved hobby. Which side loss the less doesn't really matter. the thing is, there are people out there whose hobby is ruining our hobby.
Any insight on Y MS hasnt had their "turn" yet? kinda of fishy here.
Its 2 months after Sony, so perhaps its MS turn next? Lets not turn this into a conspiracy.
I'd find it funny that at the end it all lead to Microsoft and they were the main people behind it, jealouse of them having no exclusives because some people are right...it's funny how they havent been hacked yet. (That was a joke by the way don't take it seriously) I mean from Sony to Nintendo who havent done anything wrong....I;m sorry but if I was a hacker who wanted to leave another mark in gaming history like the PSN attack I would go for Xbox Live not Nintendo because that's what there doing it for...attention.
wow what a lame post you left whtielightning, blame the one you are bias against, nice one bro
WOW freakazoid i didn't know that Microsoft hired hackers to hack their competitors that way they can show off XBOXlive as a secure system. Seriously you say the craziest of things. BTW i dont believe that your joking.
Mr Hotz. I can't help but thank you for your wonderful contribution to the video game world. Thank you for fighting for my rights by ruining them with your childish crusade and subsequently opening the flood gates to others that feel the need to validate their existence by destroying an entire group of people's, otherwise good time. Great work.
This isn't a big loss really. I mean who even plays Nintendo Wii games online? For me the Wii is all about awesome single player and offline party multiplayer.
"Awesome" single player?
The thing is, tbese hackers are getting out of hands! We need to put a stop to all these
Ya, haven't you heard of Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 No more heroes Smash Bros Brawl New Super Mario Bros Wii The Last Story
I'm getting very sick and tired of these hackers. they have nothing to do but make other people lives miserable.
LOL good job...number of Wii gamers online before hack: 20/ Number of Wii gamers online after hack: 2, JK JK, I had to :)
Looks like MS is safe.
I am not surprised that they hacked Nintendo. I bet you that they were dying to steal info on Nintendos next console. Also people claim that XBOXlive cant be hacked but if there are hackers who want to hack it, it shall happen.
Let's just hope that eventually these hacks get less publicized because what they're after most of all..is recognition. The more we click on articles about hacking, the more incentive websites have to publish them, the more "cred" these guys get.
To all those wondering why MS hasn't been hacked, consider that they probably been have but simply haven't reported it. They might not have lost any sensitive data or merely do not think it prudent to report being hacked right now. As far as I know, they aren't legally bound to report things like that, and as that professional hacker was saying in an article here a few days ago, only about 17% of companies report being hacked. Anyway, this is simply the logical conclusion to the support of a group of people who are accountable to no one and whose identities are unknown. It was stupid for gamers, any gamers, to support what hackers were doing for this reason alone, regardless of their "philosophical" leanings. I don't know if there is an analogy for a situation like this, but I would call it something akin to hiring psychopaths as soldiers. Sure, initially, they may kill the enemy and their goals may simply coincide with that of the military, but after the battle, there is no reason or impetus to stop them from wreaking havoc all over the place simply for the "lulz" of it. They are capricious, highly egocentric, have no moral compass to speak of, and thrive so pathetically on their perversion of empathy. I can't tell if I'm referring to these "hackers" or psychopaths, although psychopaths generally don't have pretensions of operating under some lofty philosophical ideal, as far as I know. Suffice it to say, this is not good for the industry in general, and I'd say for the world at large.
