Nintendo of Japan has confirmed that the server of an affiliate of Nintendo Co’s U.S. unit was accessed unlawfully a few weeks ago but no personal or company information was lost. Clearly this news must come as a huge relief to Nintendo, after Sony’s well documented troubles with hackers accessing personal information for millions of account users on the PlayStation Network.
“The server of an affiliate of Nintendo Co’s U.S. unit was accessed unlawfully a few weeks ago, but there was no damage”
“There were no third-party victims,” Toyoda said, while declining to elaborate. “But it is a fact there was some kind of possible hacking attack.”
– Company spokesman Ken Toyoda
To be honest, not a whole pile of stuff could be taken anyway. Well, nothing compared to the PlayStation Network mishap.
Who would want to hack nintendo anyways…
That’s good the hackers didn’t get anything. At least it didn’t turn out like the PSN hack, which became a PR mess.

You know, any hacking group that loves Nintendo, I can't hate.
Yeah I can’t eaither since they love Nintendo.
So the reason for them to hack was for the lulz?
Pretty much : )
I bet I know who did this: Those Lutz Sec guy… >:|
I won’t be surprised if it’s them who launched all that Project Cafe information to the web.
If you guys love Nintendo so much, DON’T ruin a good surprise!! >:|
ha nintendo knows how to secure stuff, unlike sony
Well, Nintendo has little to worry about, since the servers don’t hold credit information. That’s why the points system is in place, so you’re not technically using real money.
