Konami hacked, change your passwords now

Another day, another hacked website. Konami‘s website has been hit with 35,252 “unauthorized logins” between June 3rd and July 7th. The hackers have gained access to customer passwords, addresses, birth dates, phone numbers, and email addresses. If you have an account with Konami, now’s the time to change your passwords.

This attack comes a week after Ubisoft’s security breach where user emails and passwords were stolen, but not any payment information. The statement sent out by Konami states, “No changes to customers’ personal information, or unauthorized usage of paid services, have been detected.”

The letter also goes on to say, “Konami strengthened its security and raised its monitoring level, and measures have been taken to ensure that IDs and passwords involved in these unauthorized logins can no longer be used to log in.”
