Square Enix member service hacked

Where’s a fancy dragon or sword when you need one?  Square Enix has temporarily suspended some of its services due a suspected hacking of its member services.

“We have reason to believe that unknown parties may have gained unauthorized access to a particular Square Enix server related to the free SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS service offered in North America and Japan. In response, Square Enix, Inc. has temporarily suspended operation of the SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS service starting at 10PM (PST) on December 12, 2011.”

It doesn’t appear to have any affect on credit cards but just to be safe I’d be monitoring anyway.  Someone out there is definitely not enjoying their “fantasy” anymore.
