So more on the accounts that were compromised:

 

"Nintendo has said that these accounts were accessed via Nintendo Network IDs. The company has now disabled logging in to a Nintendo Account via Nintendo Network ID and has emailed those affected to ask them to change their password."

 

So, as suspected and I posted about last time, it was through the old Nintendo Network ID's, and now Nintendo has disabled that backdoor in and things should be safe.  Those compromised should get an email.

Nintendo would be wise to start giving away some games in light of the news that they lost 160,000 users nicknames, date of birth, email and gender.

OH NO! Not my nicknames and gender!! Certainly I require free things for this travesty....

 

 

.....seriously, piss off.

e-mail and DOB is potentially a big deal.

Never used Emuparadise, still had someone try to access my account.

 

Went in and setup 2FA with Google Authenticator.  Then I got a new phone, sooooo I had to remove it with one of the backup codes, go in, and re-add it, because accounts in GA don't transfer to a new device.  Bit of a hassle, but the peace of mind was worth it.

And like you, I don't keep payment methods saved on my accounts.  Ever since the big PSN hack, I've stuck to buying currency cards, or just doing a one-time purchase and ensuring the payment method is removed after.

if you restrict access from outside of the consoles to Nintendo ID it´s the best they can´t be hacked, because only one console at a time per account so one 3DS and one Wii U will be the only entry points.  (this can be found in Nintendo ID config)

How so?  What could someone do with a DOB, Email, and someones Nickname (not real name)?

 

I'm really confused how this could be used in a nefarious way.

I get it that some Nintendo fans have the Nintendo Banana Cock so far down there throat they will give them a free pass, but companies should be more responsible with data and offering anything free as an apology is always a good PR move.

When Sony compromised data they gave out free games, a month of PSN and a year of identity protection. All I’m saying is Nintendo might want to at least send the 160,000 ppl effected some free indie games as an apology.

As far as I know I wasn’t impacted so I don’t need anything for free but if my account was stolen, you better believe I would be expecting something.

Match that up with other nicknames/forum names/gamertags etc that have been compromised, people are creatures of habit... and use the same/similar simple password for everything.

So yeah you may not be worried that they have your NNID, but since its the same as your bank account...

For example one of the challenge questions for many accounts could be DOB...

Or your pets name... Mother's maiden name.. People like to choose the same few questions for security checks, easier to remember. Hacker gets in one minor account, sees the security questions.. uses those for another more major account.

 

Piece all the info together and real damage can be done. It's why when one database gets hacked many people get multiple different charges etc with different sites. (and why when a big database get hacked, they always tell you to change passwords everywhere else as well)

That site catalogs emails leaked from many of the hacks that happen that shows how easily they can tie passwords to emails to prior hacks to see what services they can attempt to hijack accounts on for whatever purposes they have.

 

Extraneous info can be used for a lot of older-style accounts for verification questions or just pulled off of Facebook profiles.

Surprisingly some sites use DOB for a password reset challenge.

Possibly ruin your life. An enterprising scammer can make a little go a long way so it's best to take these things seriously.

I used Frisky's link... CAG came up, completely forgot about that. Thats all.

It happened right after I started coming here (like 5-6 months later)

Do 512 gb cards ever go on sale for a reasonable price? My 256 gb card is full and I would rather double my memory than add an increase but in memory size but not a hugely substantial one.

I got that 400 GB card the last time it went on sale and love it - it's a bit slower than I'd like, but it's still a fantastic value overall.

Today Nintendo refunded me the money that the hackers took from my PayPal account. I’m pretty happy they were able to help me out.

Considering it is Nintendo's fault they should have refunded your money.  I got several emails about logins from different locations in the world for my Nintendo account. I changed my password several times and still kept getting notifications of unauthorized logins. I had to turn on 2FA to make it stop. Luckily I did not have my paypal account linked to my Nintendo account. It sounds like using the old Nintendo Network ID on 3DS/Wii U is what allowed hackers to login to accounts which was the big security whole Nintendo created in the first place.

Yeah,  I never trusted Nintendo to hold onto my payment info.  They are so behind the times on network infrastructure.  It's a pain in the ass to enter it everytime, but definitely gives some peace of mind.

 

I've got a 3DS/WiiU, but don't think I was hit.  Should I have expected emails about logins if it was hacked?  I turned on 2FA fairly quickly after it was announced, but still wondering.  Also, I have my sons on their own accounts in the family and it seemed to only allow me as the master account to turn on 2FA.  Does that filter down to them as well?

As someone who owns two WiiUs that have the prior owner's login info on them (so I can enjoy their purchased digital content), is there any reason to assume these changes will change the ability to use that content?

I think your accounts are safe now since you added 2FA for the primary account. I have the same situation and none of the other accounts were effected. Just my account was having the unauthorized logins.

I think you are fine. I did not have to change anything on the Wii U or 3DS. The switch required an update for the login information though.

Just a word of caution in case you were thinking about buying Castle Crashers. The music in the game was totally broken by the latest Switch update and doesn't sound like it'll be fixed anytime soon.

As much as I love this game, it's kind of disturbing that the remastered version of a game that's been around for over 10 years can be totally crippled that easily by a system update.
