Hackers Steal 25000 Emails And 350 CV From Eidos

Hackers have managed to breach a number of Eidos websites and managed to 25,000 anonymous email addresses and 350 potential employee resumes.

"Square Enix can confirm a group of hackers gained access to parts of our Eidosmontreal.com website as well as two of our product sites," the company said in an official statement.

"We immediately took the sites offline to assess how this had happened and what had been accessed, then took further measures to increase the security of these and all of our websites, before allowing the sites to go live again."

Square Enix stressed that the stolen emails were anonymous and that they were not linked to any personal info or credit card data.

these hackers = annoying brats

I gotta say I'm getting pretty fed up of brats like this... These hackers aren't doing anything useful or fighting for anything worthwile...

They're just being spoilled little brats that like to imagine they're on somesort of fucking crusade... Well... they're not.

They're just harmfull little twats that only make the world a worse place! I hope they get caught and are put under arrest...

As if

First they're not brats, they're adults. Kids can't do anything so high profile, just small hacks at best if they're very good. Second, there is no such thing as 'somesort of crusade', these guys stole a crapload of e-mail addresses which they'll sell to spammers. It's a crime like so many others out there, digital or otherwise. Delusional people like you don't do any good for general awareness when you post your opinions. So you're right up there with the hackers you hate so much, making the world a worse place by spreading misinformation.

regroup

Hackers regroup and hack the fuck outta sony till they crumble, serves them right for cheap security and risking there customers!

Reminder

It is of great importance that all these hacks occur. It reminds not only big company's of security but also our goverments.
The illusion that digital data is safe on a machine with internet connection should be put out of existence.
Just face the fact that their security wasn't all that good, for if it was there would be no hack.

sick of it

im sick of these hackers doin this shit!! i dont care if you hack a website and show them... ok this is how we got in and this is what we did to get in.. so please update your security. BUT what i fuken HATE is when hackers dont do that.. they steal shit and wreck shit take peoples credit card info or other info. like i said.. yes hack the site to show them where there is a security window but dont STEAL STUFF!
