Import retailer VideoGamesPlus.ca has reportedly been hacked, resulting in the personal details of 21,000 users being posted online.
A hacker posted a link to what was apparently stolen personal information from the Canadian retailer’s site on Pastebin, before posting news of the feat to Twitter.
The data, posted on Rapidshare, has since been removed, but apparently contained the names, dates of birth, email addresses, phone numbers and encrypted passwords of customers.
There are claims that Eurogamer readers (amongst others) have found their data inside the file, so we at TheSixthAxis strongly recommend you to change your password if you’ve previously used the retailer.
VideoGamesPlus.ca have yet to comment on the hack, but we’ll keep you up to date with any further developments. We recommend users have unique passwords for every site and service.
