An apparently major security fault on a UK Nintendo site, has resulted in the names, addresses and email addresses of individuals, becoming freely available to surfers on the Web.
The site offers an online shopping service to buy Nintendo games, but postings on news.admin.net-abuse have revealed that details of would-be shoppers are freely viewable on the WWW.
This morning, we were able to access a very long list of individuals who apparently had no idea their personal details were freely available.
An official Nintendo UK representative said that the site did not have official santion from her company. "They certainly have not contacted us for approval," she said.
Nintendo was creating its own UK site and would take action against infringement of its brand name, she added.
