DATA LOSS

Nintendo announced that one of its affiliate servers in the U.S. was illegally accessed "a few weeks ago," The New York Times reports. The company said the server did not contain consumer information, and "the server issue was resolved some time ago." The hacker group LulzSec claimed responsibility for the incident and a breach of an FBI partner organization called InfraGuard--a group dedicated to disclosing information about physical and cyber threats to the U.S. infrastructure.
