MangaGamer reports database security breach

From UK Anime Network News:

Security breaches of web sites big and small is a sad but unavoidable part of the online landscape at this point in time, and we’ve just received word from visual novel distributor MangaGamer that they have suffered from just such a breach in the past few hours.

The e-mail notification of an intrusion upon their database reports that no credit card information has been compromised, but that user names, passwords and e-mail addresses have potentially been accessed. As always in such a scenario, the advice is to change the password on any accounts you might have at MangaGamer, while any identical passwords used on other services should also be changed to protect yourself.
