Nintendo Report 160k Unauthorised Log-ins

Nintendo have reported of 160,000 unauthorised log-ins of Nintendo Accounts via Nintendo Network ID (NNID) from around the beginning of April. Nintendo have now abolished the function of logging in to a Nintendo Account via NNID and reset passwords to anyone that may have had their account compromised. Anyone affected will be emailed by Nintendo and encouraged to change their password. Information such as nickname, date of birth, country / region, email address, and gender could all be affected, although not credit card information. We previously wrote that Nintendo now recommend the use of 2-Step Verification.
