Data breach showing on laptopThe US division of a Japanese video game developer and publisher has been hit by a major data breach. Customers of NIS America had their personal and financial details compromised in the early part of 2018.

Between January 23rd and February 26th, hackers gained access to the addresses and payment card details of customers using credit cards to pay for new orders. Anyone using PayPal was unaffected.

NIS has urged all customers to change their passwords and be extra vigilant. It has reopened its online stores and is confident that they are now secure. As a gesture of apology and goodwill, all of its customers will receive a $5 compensation voucher.
