The Official Goods Online Shop for video game studio Square Enix updated on Tuesday to announce that “the possibility of unauthorized access in the Square Enix Official Merchandise online shop” occurred between September 13 and 18. Further investigation into the log-ins revealed evidence that information stored in the site’s servers was stolen. Stored information included customers names, addresses, telephone numbers, gender, birthday, and e-mail addresses.

The company has yet to discover proof that credit card information was stolen.

And in December 2011, they reported that both their Japanese and North American servers had been attacked, but subsequently stated that no customer data was accessed.
