LulzSec has managed to gain access to the Nintendo website publishing a web configuration file from a Nintendo American server as evidence. Nintendo America has confirmed an attack on its web server, adding that no data was stolen.

LulzSec appeared to have not done any damage to the company as they enjoyed previous Nintendo products. Telling their Twitter followers, ‘we just got a config file and made it clear that we didn’t mean any harm.’

Nintendo has now fixed issues that allowed LulzSec to gain access to the web configuration file. Tomokazu Nakaura, a spokesperson for Nintendo, told the BBC that ‘the protection of our customer information is our utmost priority.’

Meanwhile, Sony is still under continuous attacks. Sony Music Brazil has been hacked by a group unrelated to LulzSec, LulzSec saying ‘ props to whoever hacked Sony Music Brazil.’ LulzSec had previously gained access to Sony Music Japan, Netherlands and Belgium.
