Nintendo: Hacker Group Lulz Sec Claim To Have Hacked Nintendo’s Site

Bored with going after Sony, infamous hacking group Lulz Sec seem to have momentarily turned their attention to Nintendo. The group claim that there isn’t anything malicious about the attack, but it’s just an opportunity to discover if Nintendo’s website has any blatant loopholes that hackers could use to their advantage. I’m fairly adamant that they’re not after everyone’s friend codes.

    1. Be glad that there are people which test the security of Nintendo’s servers. They have no information stolen .. It could have been someone else.

  1. “I’m fairly adamant that they’re not after everyone’s friend codes.” BUT THEY’RE SO USEFUL TO PEOPLE!

  2. To be fair, there’s nothing they can do. Since Nintendo’s services are, y’know, free? That’s something we’ve got over Microsoft and Sony!

    1. That’s true. So even if their intentions WERE malicious…although I’m guessing that they’ll probably hold any information on “loopholes” for ransom or something….it’s what I’d do if I were them. I’d be more than willing to bet that Nintendo would pay a fair amount to make sure that that kind of information isn’t released to the general public.

    1. And do you believe what they say? Next thing you know they’re gonna hack again on the website to discover more goodies the public doesn’t even know or something… like actual Project Cafe pics and launch titles.

      Someone needs to call the FCC or the FBI or something, or both. That group must be shut down!!!! >:|

      1. They hacked the FBI. Well, an FBI affiliated site… Trust me, they are known by the FBI.

      2. And if they are in countries out of FBI reach (and countries with no Digital Laws) the FBI can’t touch them. Funny how that works…

  3. Nintendo reps already made a statement saying they plugged whatever hole they found a while ago. They posted a bunch of Nintendo’s server info on their Twitter for #fuckFBIFriday, which was a success btw. They are only malicious to major corporations who jerk them around.

  4. And the hole WAS made public. They posted the hack log and a bunch of hackers retweeted.

  5. Hack groups these days = script kiddies on a power trip, they do more harm than good and i really hope they get caught

    1. Dude seriously. I can’t believe these guys. Like they hack major cooperations to show that they can? They already screwed everyone with Sony over, and now they’re after Nintendo? Jeeze cuss-off freaking hackers. Leave Nintendo alone….

      Unless you hackers can score us Greece’s LoZ:OoT swag for preordering… then id be ok with it :)

      1. It honestly makes me sick because they believe that they are doing good things. Like i’m so sure that hacking everyone who was against wiki-leaks helped out SO many people and i feel pity for all of sony’s employees who would have caught so much hell because some vigilante pricks wanted to have some fun.

      2. Actually it was an advantage for me that they hacked Sony because I apparently got a PSN account on my PSP way back in the day and now Sony is giving me 2 free games. I never even use PSN either and I don’t have any info affiliated with it except my email and maybe my name. Win.

        1. Not necessarily typical of a PSN user however. For most of us it sucked having our gaming privileges taken away by a group we don’t care about for a cause we dont care about, which was probably about how Sony wants things to be paid for and the hackers thinking they have a right to pirate stuff.

  6. This is getting ridiculous. Knock it off, Lulzsec. The only thing you’re doing is punishing customers in the process. Why should I have to wait nearly a month and a half to download Japanese games off the Playstation store?

    1. Well, reading the article, you will see “Lulz Sec CLAIM to have hacked Nintendo’s site”
      It’s honestly just stupid. If they want to do some good they should get off the internet and stop being a bunch of little pricks.

  7. What a shame they are just telling taht it is a test of security? I can´t trust them :P

  8. Maybe they’ll steal our friend codes and publish them so that it’s finally like a REAL online service.

  9. Although I don’t think there doing this to target Nintendo (other than to say you’re security sucks, because they admitted like liked Nintendo), isn’t Club Nintendo linked on this site with emails and adresses of Club nintendo members?

      1. I only thought about it because I found the Mario calendar from last year and checked today to see if I’ve racked up enough points to be gold.. (I’m not even close)

  10. Hahaha I love it when they hacked sony it makes me happy that I bought a Wii. Luls Zec go and hack Sony ps3 again I need a laugh

    1. Honestly, the only people who should complain about the PSN incedent are people stupid enough to use credit card details. It worked out fine for me though, I buy the vouchers from the shop, got 2 free games from it, so for us who were smart, it’s a win ;)

  11. Hackers need to learn that just because you have power doesn’t mean you can abuse it. It seems like they have no plans to hack Nintendo, but if they do… and should the pokemon global link go down… I and over 1 million people will be completely pissed. Why ruin OUR fun because you have something to prove? Regardless of what the supposed motives are, to me it’s just a big ego trip.

  12. “I’m fairly adamant that they’re not after everyone’s friend codes.”

    I chuckled.

  13. Everyone loves nintendo even when they say the dont, There’s a little place in their heart that loves nintendo, Ii hardly doubt they will hack it plus if no one knew nintendo is more secure about their console even though we have free online. They’re not sony, Nintendo is actually good and fair to their consumers.

  14. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did
    you hire someone to doo it foor you? Plz respond as I’m looking to design my ownn blog and would like to find out
    where u got thios from. thanks

  15. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you hhave hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something not enough people are speawking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy tbat I stumbled across this during my seaarch for
    something concerning this.

  16. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have developed some nice methods and we are
    looking to tade techniques with others, pllease shoot me an e-mail if interested.
