Konami’s official statement reported 35,252 cases of unauthorized logins to their ID Portal Site between June 13th and July 7th, 2013. The errors in the system were detected on July 8th. ID’s and passwords were leaked through an external service provider.

Konami has already taken measures to prevent logins from those accounts and deeply apologizes for the trouble. Of the 35,000 accounts, there were 3.9 million login attempts. Hacked accounts have possibly given out personal information, such as name, address, date of birth, phone number, and email. Nothing that’s probably not already all over the internet as it is. Konami reassures that no changes were made to personal information, nor were any unauthorized usage of paid services detected.

Konami has taken steps to increase their security, but as always make sure you change your passwords.
