"Sega has confirmed that the personal data of 1.29 million of its customers was stolen in an attack on its systems. It comes after the computer games firm said on Friday that e-mail addresses and dates of birth stored on the Sega Pass database were accessed by hackers. However, Sega continues to say that payment information, such as credit card numbers, remained safe. Sega spokeswoman Yoko Nagasawa said: 'We are deeply sorry for causing trouble to our customers.' She added: 'We want to work on strengthening security.' Ms Nagasawa added that it was not yet known when the Sega Pass online network could be restarted." (06/19/11)
