    I wonder how someone would end up on that list. I suspect it has nothing to do with leaks and more about "Fill out these 5 surveys to win a $50 eShop card"

    Hahaha, what a story Mark. But really, if an NNID is linked while breached, the hacker can't gain entry right? NNIDs are bound to a console once linked, and even unlinked, the NNID would have to be system transferred in order to move to another console.

    They would have the terrifying power of having full control over your MyNintendo account /s

    Same here, though I'm surprised it took as long as it did for them to get a breach.

    Cross post:
    Uh, why would any of you believe that the list is actually this small? Are you all pants-on-head retarded? EVERYONE should change their passwords NOW, even those that were console banned in the SuMo wave! It doesn't matter if your name is on the list or not. This is obviously a snippet (hence the "+" in "400+").

    Wish the process to reset passwords wasn't so wonky. Will do it after I've slept.

    That doesn't matter since one can login to the NNID on Nintendo's site. Linking and logging in are two different things. Plus, we don't know how these accounts were obtained. They could have been phished, or someone could have found a 0day. Apparently @PF2M is a suspect or something, so let's see what happens.

    It's only stuff from the Nugget Bridge leak that happened a month ago, if you're not in there then you won't be in here.
