If you’re part of the Square Enix Members club, check your email. Over the weekend, the company reported a “limited server intrusion” on December 12, and has temporarily shut it down.
This has only affected North America and Japan, not Europe.
Square Enix claims no personal information has been “accessed” in the server intrusion, but the server did contain email addresses, names, addresses and phone numbers of its 1.8 million registered users.
The company also said both user login information and credit card details are not stored on the server that suffered the intrusion.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary suspension of the Square Enix Members service,” said the company. “We take data security extremely seriously and we regret any inconvenience this may have caused our customers and fans. We appreciate your patience and support at this time as we finalize our investigation in the next few days.”
This is not the first time Square Enix has been hit with a similar problem. In May, the Eidos Montreal website was compromised, which affected 350 resumes and 25,000 email addresses.
