Indie retailer Videogamesplus.ca hacked

Canadian games importer Videogamesplus.ca has reportedly been hacked, leading to the details of 21,000 customers being leaked online.

Edge reports that a list of names, phone numbers, dates of birth and encrypted passwords was uploaded to Pastebin, though links to the file have since been removed.

Videogamesplus is a popular option for gamers who are looking to import Japanese or American console games into the UK and Europe, particularly in light of the restrictions placed on some products by the likes of Play Asia.
