2.5 million XBOX 360 and PSP ISO forum accounts breached

An unidentified hacker reportedly breached the XBOX 360 and PlayStation Portable ISO forums compromising 2.5 million gamer accounts.

The breaches occurred approximately around September 2015 and compromised email addresses, account passwords and IP addresses, according to independent researcher Troy Hunt.

Gamers who use the accounts are advised to reset the passwords for all of their gaming accounts. Although the breaches may have affected a great deal of gamers, some researchers believe the gaming community may not be hit as hard as by the breach as some would think.

Xbox and PSP users are pretty tech savvy bunch with accounts for many different services, Jonathan Sander, vice president at Lieberman Software, told SC Media.
