Japanese game developer Square Enix Holdings said email addresses of 
25,000 customers as well as resumes of 250 job applicants were leaked 
after a hacker attack against its European subsidiary.

Hackers accessed the Eidosmontreal.com website, managed by London-based 
Square Enix Ltd, as well as other product sites, said a statement from 
the group released late Saturday.

The news came as Sony's game and Internet services were pulled down 
after hackers staged one of the biggest data breaches since the advent 
of the Internet, including the theft of personal customer data.

Square Enix Holdings, creator of mega hits such as Final Fantasy and the 
Dragon Quest series, took the sites offline to increase security, before 
resuming services.
