Sega Hacked By Keyboard Commandos - Joins Nintendo, Sony, Bethesda, Epic Et Al.

Sega has joined a glorious list of gaming industry titans and publisher that have been hacked. The hackers are clearly showing no remorse and it seems this new game of hacking is more enjoyable to the keyboard commandos than Counter Strike or Sonic the Hedgehog ever was as in Lulz Security's latest press release post:
And that's all there is to it, that's what appeals to our Internet generation. We're attracted to fast-changing scenarios, and we can't stand repetitiveness, and we want our shot of entertainment or we just go and browse something else, like an unimpressed zombie. Nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan, anyway...
This is the Internet, where we screw each other over for a jolt of satisfaction. There are peons and lulz lizards; trolls and victims.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the breach of the Sega Pass network. This is what Sega has revealed to the public about the breach:
Over the last 24 hours we have identified that unauthorised entry was gained to our SEGA Pass database.We immediately took the appropriate action to protect our consumers’ data and isolate the location of the breach. We have launched an investigation into the extent of the breach of our public systems....We have identified that a subset of SEGA Pass members emails addresses, dates of birth and encrypted passwords were obtained. To stress, none of the passwords obtained were stored in plain text.Please note that no personal payment information was stored by SEGA as we use external payment providers, meaning your payment details were not at risk from this intrusion.
