DATA LOSS—JAPANMay 20, 2011
Japanese game developer Square Enix announced a breach that may have affected 25,000 e-mail addresses and as many as 350 resumes of job seekers, reports Cryptzone. Hackers gained access to a subsidiary's website and to an online page for a yet-to-be-released game. Upon discovering the breach, the company took down both sites and enhanced their security before making them live again. Square Enix is writing apology letters to those affected.
