Dear Square Enix Member,
You are receiving this email because Square Enix detected a limited server intrusion on December 12, 2011, and temporarily suspended the US/JP editions of the SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS service in order to conduct an investigation.
Based on our investigation, we have found no evidence at this point that any personal information was accessed. User login credentials and credit card information are not stored on the affected server. We are continuing to investigate.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary suspension of the SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS service. We take data security extremely seriously and we regret any inconvenience this may have caused our customers and fans. We appreciate your patience and support at this time as we finalize our investigation in the next few days.
Any updates will be posted on our corporate website
It appears to be a minor breach of security however if you possess a Square Enix account, now would be a good time to start monitoring the situation and any information that you've entrusted into that account.

Well i am a member of Square Enix but i do not purchase anything from these games people or any other company,if i want a game i will go out and purchase the game,i feel for those members and guests who have no choice but to use these game company's i.e. peoples locations are to far away from any shopping areas and some people who just cannot get out and about,so EA time to clean up your own backyard and stop banning members for petty things,and the same goes for Steam/Blizzard,who knows maybe this would not have happened if E.A. and Steam/Blizzard would ease up a little on petty offences.
I remember when Square Enix (or some company related to them) tried to make their own portable game system. That thing never did catch on.
