The Korean Herald, a security breach involving Nexon Korea Corp.'s MapleStory servers resulted in the "leak" of encrypted personal information, including usernames, passwords and the South Korean equivalent of Social Security Numbers.
Players in other parts of the world need not be concerned, however. A Nexon representative told the Yonhap News service that South Korea's servers are independent from those in other regions, and as a result only South Korean information was compromised.
Our guess? Jealous Canadian syrup extremists. It's the only explanation that makes sense.
