Hackers Breach MapleStory Korea's Database
According to a report from The Korea Herald, no user details beyond Korea seem to have been compromised. Nexon is urging players in the affected area to change their passwords on MapleStory accounts and anywhere else that may have shared the compromised passwords.
"We operate separate servers in each country," said a Nexon spokesman. "Only Korean users' information was affected."
The attack is being called the second largest online security breach in the countrys history and is sad news for players and Nexon, who is scheduled to make its initial public offering in Tokyo next month.
