Sega has officially confirmed that Sega Pass, the company’s online network, has been hacked. According to CNN, the company reported that personal information from at least 1.29 million customers was stolen from the membership database. The information stolen included e-mail addresses, passwords, and dates of birth, although Sega reported that members’ credit card numbers were safe. It’s reminiscent of the incident a few months ago, when Sony’s Playstation Network was hacked. However, LulzSec — the mysterious hacker consortium that took credit for the Sony infiltration — denied responsibility in the Sega hack via Twitter, proclaiming, “@Sega – contact us. We want to help you destroy the hackers that attacked you. We love the Dreamcast, these people are going down.”
