Japanese Club Nintendo Hacked

Thankfully, this hasn’t also happened to the US or European version of the service, but the Japanese version of Club Nintendo has recently been hacked and all users advised to reset their passwords.

Apparently members in Japan may have had their names, addresses and phone numbers compromised as well.

Pretty bad news isn’t it?  I mean, I’m thankful this incident is only contained to the Japanese service rather than the different worldwide equivalents, but to see Nintendo themselves basically hacked and member information stolen is kind of scary.  If you’re a Japanese fan of Nintendo and have a Club Nintendo account, change all your passwords immediately!
