Hackers have managed to access the Club Nintendo website more than 23,000 times over the last month, Nintendo has confirmed.
The company informed CVG that ”this only affects the Japanese Club Nintendo and is not an international issue,” so there’s no need to panic–unless you live in Japan. Nintendo revealed that full names, home addresses, phone numbers, and mail addresses had all been compromised during the attacks.
The hacking began on June 9, according to Nintendo, before it was finally discovered on July 2. An investigation discovered that 23,000 unauthorized log-ins had been detected from 15 million attempts.
Nintendo has emailed password resets to all Club Nintendo members in the region.
