Sega Attacked by Hackers

Sega, a franchise known worldwide for its Sonic the Hedgehog character, became the latest corporation to be attacked by hackers. Before the start of any investigation, hacker group LulzSec quickly denied any involvement in the issue.

Considering revelations on how really lax security is in many multinational organizations, it seems that hacking is now the most favorite sport for Internet users, at least for the last few months. In order to show how many companies have already been hacked, CNET has even made a chart on them – listing not only which organization was hacked, but also by whom. Although quite a number of those companies were a part of Sony Corporation, Sony is not the only company being hacked nowadays.

According to the BBC, Sega, namely the Sega Pass database, was the latest target for hacker groups. Despite the fact that some hacking groups are ready to claim responsibility, it is unclear who is liable for this hack thus far. Meanwhile, LulzSec denied any involvement in the issue. Moreover, the hacker group has threatened retaliation against the responsible hackers should they discover who they are. The reason announced was quite interesting – LulzSec claimed they were fans of Dreamcast!

Sega reports that the server that was attacked contained database covering e-mails and dates of birth. However, other personal details of the users were handled on another server, not affected by the hack. Nevertheless, an investigation is ongoing at this stage.

In comparison with the other companies accused of being irresponsible, Sega turned out to be good at least because it put sensitive data on another server. In other words, the company allows for the creation of an extra barrier of security, and thus far it’s done its job. In addition, the company has reset passwords of all its users, which is again a wise step.

Currently it is unclear what will come out of the situation, but it has already become a usual thing for the affected companies to weather the publicity storm. In this case, Sega tried to show that its specialists put a fair amount of effort to protect their customers’ sensitive information, particularly financially related. The company showed a good example by being very transparent and taking steps to further protect its customers once a problem arose, which reflects positively on the corporation.
