No Square Enix Members Personal Data Was Leaked During Hack

Square says its users' data is safe.

Square Enix has released a statement asserting that no personal data belonging to the users of its Square Enix Members service was compromised during last week’s hack. The publisher’s statements contradict a story that emanated from Japanese news agency NHK which warned that 1.8 million customers might have had their accounts accessed by the intruder(s).

“As a result of our continuing investigation, we have now confirmed that the database in which we store personal information was NOT accessed during the recent server intrusion,” Square state. “Therefore, your personal information was NOT compromised by an unknown third party.”

Square Enix went on to explain that the Members service, which they have kept shut down during their investigation, will reopen before the month is out.
