Square Enix Suspends Member Operations After Community Site Hacked

Whoa, look out if you have a Square Enix account. The community site for the RPG maker has apparently been compromised, and Squeenix has shut it down for the time being.

On the plus side, Square Enix says it can confirm that no credit card information was accessed in the security breach, because the server that was breached didn’t have credit card information on it. It can’t say the same for personal information, though. “We estimate that the suspension will continue for a few days until we complete our investigation and counter-measures. We will update you as we learn more.”

So there you have it. It’ll likely be a few days, Squeenix says, before the incursion is resolved. Keep an eye on Square’s forums, and in the meantime, we’ll bring you more information as it becomes available.

Nooo, not the annoying puns. Don’t turn into the Inquirer (not the rag mag, but rather the British Tech news site).
