(The Hosting News) – Fresh off of hitting SonyPictures.com with a single SQL injection and compromising PBS’s site, the hacking group known as “Lulzsec” hacked an FBI-affiliated site on Friday. They also acknowledged on Sunday that they had hacked Nintendo America several weeks ago.
Lulzsec successfully compromised FBI affiliated site Infragard over the weekend, leaking database information belonging to 180 users from the site’s servers. Infragard is a private-sector company based in Atlanta. It works as a link between the FBI and businesses.
The hacking group apparently took aim at the site due to the U.S. government’s recent announcement that some hacking attacks could be considered acts of war.
Meanwhile, they were less successful when targeting Nintendo.
On Lulzsec’s Twitter page, the hacker group noted the results were minimal and stated “Re: Nintendo, we just got a config file and made it clear that we didn’t mean any harm. Nintendo had already fixed it anyway. <3 them.”
Speaking of the compromised server in a statement to Reuters, Nintendo America said it “contained no consumer information.” The hack resulted in a simple “server configuration issue”, which Nintendo quickly fixed. The company went on to say, “The protection of our customer information is our utmost priority.”
Tomorrow, Nintendo will debut its new gaming console at E3, its first since releasing the Wii in 2006.
