November 28, 2011

Thirteen million Korean gamers might be open to data abuse after hackers broke into gaming outfit Nexon and plucked their Maple Story credentials.

Reports from the South Korea say that the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) has warned about the threat to online gamers that was revealed to it late on Friday.

Nexon’s Maple Story game has 13.2 million Korean subscribers and, according to the Korea Times, they risk exposure after their names, user identifications, resident registration numbers and passwords were leaked through the hacking incident.
