A security breach has caused video game company Gameloft to shut down one of its Web sites.

"Reports began surfacing on the company's Web forums earlier this week, suggesting that the GameloftLive.com Web site had been experiencing problems and that some accounts had been compromised," writes CNET News' Declan McCullagh.

"In a statement to CNET this morning, a Gameloft representative said: 'Gameloft live Web version had suffered from a security issue. ... As less than 1 percent of Gameloft Live users accessed Gameloft Live through the Web version, we decided to close the web version of Gameloft Live,'" McCullagh writes.
