The Japanese video game developer Sega Corp confirms that information belonging to 1.3 million customers has been stolen, which is the latest global cyber attack reported. Names, birth dates, e-mail addresses, and encrypted passwords of users of Sega Pass online network members have been stolen, though credit card numbers are safe, Sega said in a statement. Sega Pass had been shut down following the attack. The company said that they are trying to strengthen the security aspects of their online network Sega Pass. The cyber attack follows other recent similar breaches, which includes Citigroup and International Monetary Fund. The breaches on Sega follow the high-profile attack on the PlayStation of Sony Corporation in April, which led to the theft of account data of over 100 million customers. Sega Europe, a division of Sega that runs the Sega Pass network, notified its corporate office and the network customers after it found out about the breach on Thursday. Lulz Security has offered to track down and punish the hackers who broke into Sega?s database.
