Login details of over 2.5 million PlayStation and Xbox have reportedly been stolen by hackers. 

Details, including email address passwords and IP addresses of gamers who had been using the unofficial Xbox360 ISO and PSP ISO forums, were stolen in late 2015, but the details have recently surfaced.

 

The two popular forums used by the players to share and download free and pirated games were unofficial. They were not even associated with Sony or Microsoft.

According to reports by breach alert website HaveIBeenPwned, around 1.3 million account details were stolen from the PSP ISO forum and 1.2 million from the Xbox360 ISO. 

This isn’t the first time that PlayStation and Xbox users have been victims of a cyber attack. Back in 2014, details of about 13,000 PlayStation users were leaked in a breach. However, this time the number is over a 100 times than the first breach.

Gamers can check whether they have been victims to the hack by entering their email address into HaveIBeenPwned website.
