Roughly 13 million MapleStory accounts were recently hacked, compromising player names, user IDs, passwords, and South Korean federal registration numbers. It is being investigated by the Korea Communications Commission; no word on whether this will affect publisher Nexon’s IPO.
While roughly 75 percent of the MapleStory was affected, no player outside of Korea need worry. “We operate separate servers in each country. Only Korean users’ information was affected,” said the company.
