Hackers snatch users' info from online store

'Your money or your data'

By Greg Sandoval

Published: Tuesday 20 December 2005

A maker of popular role-playing games was forced to shut down its
online store for four days after hackers pilfered email addresses,
user names and encrypted passwords.

White Wolf Publishing, creator of video and table-top games such as
World of Darkness and Vampire: The Requiem, received a message from
an "international group of hackers" on 11 December saying they had
penetrated the company's online security defence, said a company
spokeswoman.
