Xbox One Mag Hacked by Ecuadorian Cyber Army

Members of the Ecuadorian Cyber Army recently claimed to have breached the French Xbox One Mag Web site, and published user data online.

The hackers posted a statement on Pastebin in protest of Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa, reading (in a rough translation from Spanish), "We don't have a president, we don't want Rafael. Rafael Correa won because the battle from the other candidates was too weak. Rafael Correa was a referee, with a campaign paid for by the state" -- followed by 2,035 users' full names, e-mail addresses and mailing addresses.

Since there's no clear connection between President Correa and a French Xbox news site, it's safe to assume the hackers' choice of target was based purely on the ease of finding a vulnerability -- but assuming the data is legitimate, 2,035 French gamers can now expect a flood of spam.
