Reports are surfacing that private details, including email addresses, account passwords and IP addresses, of 2.5 million PlayStation and Xbox users have been leaked in a major data breach. The hack breached forums 'XBOX360 ISO' and 'PSP ISO' in 2015, but details of the leak are only just coming to light now.

Commenting on this, Robert Capps, VP of business development at NuData Security, said “The recently disclosed data theft from the unofficial PlayStation and Xbox forums is yet another example of the need for consumers to be wary of who they provide their information to, online. While this site is mostly used to distribute pirated copies of games, DVD’s and BluRays, consumers who use the forums need to make sure that they are vigilant. Keep alert to any phishing scams that may appear in email as a result of this hack, changing passwords on any site where the passwords or usernames used on these sites are used. This data is likely to be sold on the Dark Web and used for future cyber crime. It’s a good reminder to choose unique passwords on all sites that require registration.”
