Default Sony ain`t the only ones getting hacked! Old hackers arrested!

Codemaster has been hacked!

Quote:
The personal information of thousands of people has been stolen after hackers breached British games publisher Codemasters, who recently released Dirt 3.

Names, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, passwords, IP addesses and Xbox gamer tags were all taken in an attack staged on June 3.

A spokesperson for Codemasters told the BBC that they have no idea who breached the site or how many people have had their details stolen, though it would affect tens of thousands of users.

But no payment details were taken, according to Codemasters who described the theft as "significant."

In an email, Codemasters recommends that its users "change any passwords you have associated with other Codemasters accounts. If you use the same login information for other sites, you should change that information too."

They have also advised gamers to be vigilant against "potential scams, via email, phone, or post that ask you for personal or sensitive information."

Codemasters website is currently offline, redirecting users to its Facebook page.
And PSN hackers arrested!

Quote:
Three members of the infamous Anonymous "hacktivist" group have been arrested in Spain on charges of being involved in the recent devastating attack on the PlayStation Network, as well as for other unrelated cyber-attacks.

As Reuters reports, three unnamed suspects were arrested in three separate Spanish cities. All were described as being in their 30s. According to the report, Spanish police claim those arrested "were guilty of coordinated computer hacking attacks from a server set up in a house in Gijon in the north of Spain."

There's little else in the way of concrete details currently available, but we will update this story as further information develops.

All I can say is these things:

There's a reason why I don't have XBox Live

AND

Now would be a great time to be in the marketing industry for the Nintendo Wii.

Also, would anyone want to bet that the 360 hackers are being paid by Sony?

It has nothing to specifically do with the Xbox. Its just Codemaster that suck balls and give away people gamertags.

In addition it is interesting to note that Epic games (I think that is what they are called but they make the Gears of War games) have also recently been hacked as well.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Hackers are pathetic wastes of life, they should all receive the death sentence.

I would say "cut off their nuts," but in all probability these poor fucks have never found a good use for those in their damn lives.
