    It happened to me. Got an email with a new login attempt from Russia. Luckily no purchases made. Password changed and 2 step on. Recommend you guys do the same

    I can't say I have investigated Sony and MS' bug bounties but I would struggle to believe they don't have any.

    As for Nintendo why makes you so certain of their practices? Some of the absolute howlers we have seen come from Nintendo over the years, and continued awfulness of their servers in general, does rather lead me to being uncharitable by default. Similarly why I am not terribly inclined to believe people when they tell me, indeed cross their heart and hope to die no less, a password is long and not reused anywhere it seems to be widespread enough without common factors right now to make me look at another compromised site feeding a grab.

    Likewise 20K for a potentially millions large vaguely current login and whatnot? That is nothing for just the batch, and if they can cycle them themselves then even more so.

    I received support email back after 15 days. They sent me a link about how to restore my account. My email already told them that I changed my password. Useless people giving useless support and late.
