LulzSec, the hacking group who’s claimed responsibility for numerous breaches recently, is not responsible for the Sega breach that came to light earlier today. So they claim on their official Twitter feed, even offering Sega their assistance.
“Sega – contact us,” begins the tweet. “We want to help you destroy the hackers that attacked you. We love the Dreamcast, these people are going down.”
The “unauthorised entry” into Sega’s Pass system compromised users’ emails, birth dates and encrypted passwords. Payment details were not at risk.
The company has shut down the affected services and is currently investingating the breach.
