A NEW CYBER ATTACK AGAINST A GAMING COMPANY

A NEW CYBER ATTACK AGAINST A GAMING COMPANY
The Japanese firm SEGA, known all over the world for its videogames (Sonics etc.), confirmed that personal data of more that 1,29 million of users were stolen by hackers during a cyber-attack against the London European headquarter last Thursday. Data stolen are part of the “Sega Pass” account data, including names, email addresses and encrypted passwords.

The details of the attack are not available yet, but Sega guarantees that among the data stolen are not included credit card data.

However, considering the confidentiality of the user account data, the risks of episodes of identity theft have to be taken seriously.

After the Sony case in April, we’re in front of another massive case of data theft potentially damaging millions of users.
The trend poses serious questions about the cyber-security procedures adopted by leading entertainment companies to protect their customers data.
