Earlier yesterday, Nexon Korea announced that the database for MapleStory was hacked. The personal details of 18,000,000 registered accounts and 13,000,000 active playing accounts were apparently exposed to a 3rd party. These details include the players’ real names, account userid, password, security pins, KSSN and everything there s needed to sign up for a Nexon account.
However, there will be no monetary loss as no information for transactions and payments were leaked out. While Nexon Korea expressed its apologies, there will be an event to get players to change their passwords and security information soon. The hacking only affected players who registered for MapleStory, hence other games were not affected. Nexon Korea is now working with the police to investigate the matter.
