It’s been a hellish month for Sony, which has faced no less than three major data breaches and a number of minor ones. And now the woes have spread to Nintendo… or have they?

LulzSec, the group responsible for breaking into the Sony Pictures user database, tweeted that it had gotten inside a Nintendo server, but got nothing more than a config file, even noting that Nintendo had already plugged the hole at the time of posting. They seemed to show an affinity for Nintendo, or rather enmity towards Sony, and suggested they meant no harm.

Nintendo acknowledged that the server had been accessed, but stressed that there was no user information on it, saying “The protection of our customer information is our utmost priority.”
