Nintendo Reveals 160,000 Accounts Were Breached

(CNN) — Nintendo revealed on Friday that 160,000 accounts were breached since the beginning of April, by hackers using others’ Nintendo Network IDs without permission. The company announced users will no longer need to use these IDs to log into their accounts, and that passwords on accounts that may have been breached will be reset. Over the past month, users on social media were complaining of missing funds from their Nintendo accounts and, in some cases, seeing their money being used to buy Fortnite’s virtual currency, V-Bucks. In addition to logging in to potentially play other users’ games, the hackers were also able to see individuals’ date of birth, country or region and email addresses. They could also access payment services linked to these accounts, including PayPal accounts or credit cards to buy items on Nintendo’s platform. “We sincerely apologize to our customers and related parties for any inconvenience and concern. In the future, we will make further efforts to strengthen security and ensure safety so that similar events do not occur,” said Nintendo in an announcement originally written in Japanese.

Man beaten in Dodgers Stadium parking lot, left with brain damage is suing the team for negligence

The Los Angeles Dodgers are being sued for negligence by a man who was attacked in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium and left with brain damage, his lawyers announced Friday. The lawsuit, filed this week by Rafael Reyna and his wife, contends that the stadium lacked adequate security. “We have no comment” on the lawsuit, team spokesman Joe Jareck said in an email. Reyna, 45, was attacked while walking to his car shortly after midnight on March 30, 2019, after watching a 13-inning game that ended in a 5-4 win by the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to the lawsuit. He was punched during an argument, authorities say. The lawsuit said Reyna was on the phone with his wife, telling her that he was on his way home, when unknown attackers “punched him repeatedly, causing him to collapse onto the asphalt, strike his head, and lose consciousness,” while his wife heard the entire assault. The parking lot lacked adequate lighting or security guards, and it took personnel at least 10 minutes to discover Reyna and longer for him to receive emergency medical care, the lawsuit alleged.…

More than 88 million people received their stimulus payments, totaling nearly $158 billion, IRS says

More than 88 million people received their stimulus payments last week, totaling nearly $158 billion, the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service said Friday. That leaves about 62 million people who are still waiting for the cash payments authorized by Congress in March. The data shows that as of April 17, the greatest number of payments went to California, where 9.1 million taxpayers received a total of $15.9 billion. Texans received the second most money so far, followed by Florida, New York and then Pennsylvania. Individuals are due up to $1,200 and married couples can receive up to $2,400. The amount falls as income goes up, eventually phasing out for the highest-income earners. The process of sending out the money is ongoing and it could take months before everyone eligible receives it. The IRS started by sending money to the people it could reach the fastest. This was anyone who had direct deposit information already on file with the agency because they were due a refund on either their 2018 or 2019 federal tax returns. Others can use an online IRS tool to input bank account information to receive a direct…
