At Nintendo there was a major security leak. According to the company, more than 160,000 accounts have illegal logins.

Illegal logins on Nintendo

No credit card data was read, but names, addresses, email addresses and dates of birth may have been stolen. There are even reports that some accounts have been used to buy V-Bucks for Fortnite.

Nintendo said it would soon contact the affected players so that they could reset their Nintendo Network password. In addition, it should no longer be possible to log into a Nintendo Account using the Nintendo Network ID. The company also advises everyone to switch to two-factor authentication.

"As we continue to investigate, we want to reassure users that there is currently no evidence of a breach of Nintendo's databases, servers, or services," the company says. "As the investigation progresses, we will not publish any further information about the methods of obtaining unauthorized access to prevent further attempts by unauthorized logins. We apologize for the inconvenience and understand our customers' concerns and will continue to work hard on security to ensure the data of our users. "
