Ars Technica has a handy one-stop outline of today's game website hacking incidents. Word is the amusement-motivated hacking group Lulz Security hit several targets today, some apparently inadvertently. The EVE Online login servers were knocked offline, as was the EVE Online website, and CCP tweets: "Earlier we became aware of a DDoS and took all services offline. Our Security Team is conducting a thorough investigation." Also knocked out were the Minecraft login servers as well as the Minecraft website, which was apparently collateral damage. Likewise, the group hacked the login server for League of Legends and the League of Legends Website. Also taken offline for periods today were Finfisher and The Escapist. According to CCP, the EVE Online breach did not expose any user data: "Our taskforce concluded at 22:05 that neither the game servers nor the CCP infrastructure had been breached. Further, we can also confirm that no personal details such as users’ credentials or credit card numbers were exposed through this incident."
