Earlier today IncGamers picked up on reports that GAME.co.uk had been hacked and they email addresses and passwords of the website’s customers had been published online.
GAME has since responded to the reports, saying that no hacking has taken place and that no personal information has been compromised.
“At GAME we guard our customers’ details very carefully,” says GAME Group’s Anna-Marie Mason.
“We have thoroughly investigated the hacking claims made today by the website Pastebin, and can confirm that they are entirely false. The published email addresses are not registered users of GAME.co.uk, and there has been no breach of our database security.
“We would like to assure all our customers that their details are well protected, and advise anyone who has any questions to contact our customer services team via the website, our Facebook page or Twitter account.”
