Nintendo said today that hackers breached a server for its U.S. website but no customer information was compromised. The hacker group Lulzsec, which is behind other breaches of Sony websites earlier this week, claimed responsibility.
Lulzsec posted a server configuration file as proof of its involvement yet said it wasn't targeting Nintendo. "We just got a config file and made it clear that we didn't mean any harm," the group said this morning via its Twitter. "Nintendo had already fixed it anyway. <3 them!"
Lulzsec has claimed responsibility for earlier breaches of Sony Pictures and Sony BMG sites, posting databases of coupons, free download codes, and registration information of users who signed up at those sites. It also defaced PBS after its newsmagazine Frontline aired a story that wasn't 100 percent complimentary of Wikileaks.
