Hackers steal customer data from gaming company

A maker of popular role-playing games was forced to shut down its online store for four days after hackers pilfered e-mail addresses, user names and encrypted passwords.
  • White Wolf Publishing, creator of video and table-top games such as "World of Darkness" and "Vampire: The Requiem," received a message from an "international group of hackers" on Dec. 11 saying they had penetrated the company's online security defense, said company spokeswoman Kelley Herman.
  • The hackers threatened to post user data on the Web unless the company paid them a sum of money. White Wolf has not publicly disclosed the amount of that sum.
