Nintendo server attacked

This article explains about the company Nintendo, which was attacked by the hacking group Lulz Security. It is the same hacking group that attacked the websites of Sony weeks ago.

There have been attacks the past few months on companies, which resulted in loss of valuable consumer data. It also places most companies in very bad positions.

A quote from the article stated by Tomokazu Nakaru, “The protection of our customer information is our utmost priority” included with “Therefore, we constantly monitor our security”.
I find it highly recommended for all companies to prioritize the security of customer information in order to avoid the situation like Sony experienced.
