Konami ID user information accessed, Konami strengthens security measures

Friday, 12th July 2013 16:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Konami has reported that 35,000 unauthorised log-ins attempts to the Konami ID portal have occurred due to Pro Evo user ID and passwords being leaked. The firm said nearly four million attempts were made by a third-party user. The names, addresses, dates of birth, telephone numbers and email addresses were accessed, therefore all Konami ID users will need to change their passwords. All those affected should have received an email on the matter. Konami has since strengthened security and raised the monitoring level. Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Konami had the following to say, in a reassuringly frank statement addressed to all customers on this situation:

    “35,252 cases of unauthorized logins to the KONAMI ID Portal Site have occurred using IDs and passwords that appear to have been leaked from an external service provider. Currently, Konami has taken measures to ensure that logins cannot be performed using IDs and passwords involved in these unauthorized logins, and as we contact affected customers individually, we request that customers change their passwords.”
