The Nintendo said that hackers attempted to intrude company's US unit unlawfully a few weeks ago. But the company stated that there was no data breach or any other damages.
"There were no third-party victims, but it is a fact there was some kind of possible hacking attack," Nintendo spokesman Ken Toyoda said.
Hacking attempt on Nintendo was officially confirmed hours after its rival Sony faced cyber attack by a hacker group called 'Lulz Security,' the latest in the ongoing hack on Sony services. Lulz Security published online the names, birth dates, addresses, emails, phone numbers and passwords of people who had entered contests promoted by Sony.
"Greetings folks. We're LulzSec, and welcome to Sownage. Enclosed you will find various collections of data stolen from internal Sony networks and websites, all of which we accessed easily and without the need for outside support or money," Lulz Security posted on their Twitter account.
Earlier, Sony faced hacking attack on PlayStation Network, Qriocity and Sony Online Entertainment and forced to pull these services offline. Sony resumed these services nearly a month after the attack.
