The very same hackers, Lulzsec, who targeted Sony recently, went after Nintendo's US website too, and posted a configuration file as proof of their evil-doings (though no customer information was compromised.) According to their Twitter account, "we just got a config file and made it clear that we didn't mean any harm. Nintendo had already fixed it anyway. <3 them!" It's not known why they chose to break into Nintendo's site, though maybe it was with one of those "because we can" attitudes. Ambitious sods! [Twitter via WSJ via Kotaku]
