From the BBC News website.
The personal details of thousands of people have been stolen after hackers targeted British games developer Codemasters.
The firm described the data theft as "significant" saying names, addresses, phone numbers and dates of birth were all taken on 3 June.
However, it said that payment details were not compromised.
The latest security breach comes in the midst of a spate of hacker attacks, including several against Sony.
Codemasters said it took the compromised website offline "as soon as the intrusion was detected".
