The Associated Press is reporting that hackers recently attacked a Nintendo server. Nintendo has confirmed to AP that no user data was compromised in the attack, which makes sense to me since they require that I enter all of my info every time I want to buy something from one of their marketplaces. This is probably the reason why.

LulzSec, the same group behind the recent assault on seemingly every server that Sony has connected to the internet, has claimed responsibility for the attack. According to their Twitter feed, the hack for their own personal entertainment with no malice aimed toward the console-maker. LulzSec and Nintendo have both confirmed that the security vulnerability which gave access has since been closed.
