A similar case has emerged in Nintendo (Nintendo), one of the biggest companies in the gaming world. Hackers entered the account of thousands of users of this Japanese company and got their personal information. According to the company, about 3 lakh accounts have become victims of this.

Although the company has told that the hackers were not able to get sensitive details like any user's credit card, but they have obtained personal information like date of birth and email. The company issued a statement apologizing to its customers.
The company said, “We have also apologized for the problems and concern the customers have had.” We will increase security more so that it does not happen again. ”
