First Sony, Now Nintendo

MSNBC is reporting that Nintendo may be the most recent victim in a string of gaming related security threats.

The same group claiming the breaking on the Sony PSN (and other services) has come forward with internal Nintendo server information. The Lulz Security group has stated that they are trying to help Nintendo by pointing out this potential flaw in hopes that they will take action and plug this potential vulnerability. In fact they professed a level of love for older Nintendo consoles and that this hack was just for fun.

While Nintendo claims no ‘third party’ (meaning gamer) data was taken, they did recognize the intrusion and will hopefully begin to address the weak point in their network security.

One final thought… Microsoft are you watching, and learning and adapting… I sure hope so.
