Square on hack: 'Personal information not accessed'

Hackers didn't access users' personal details, says publisher

Square Enix has said that the hackers behind this week's 'Members' attack did not access users' personal information.


Around 1.8 million Square Enix Members accounts were compromised by a recent online attack, Square said earlier this week.

But those vulnerable can now breathe a sigh of relief. "Square Enix has now determined that user login credentials were not accessed," it has said in an updated post on its site.

"Moreover, we have not found evidence that the individual was able to access any personal information at all," adds Square.

It's a relief, but the Square Enix Members service will remain offline for now, says the publisher.

"Because we have decided to conduct a broader internal investigation, it will take a few more days before we make the SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS service available once again. We deeply regret the inconvenience this may have caused our customers and fans, and appreciate your patience," it concluded.
