(CNN) — Nintendo has revealed that a total of 300,000 accounts have been hacked.
The video game company first discovered the breach in April. Hackers had been using Nintendo I-DS without permission.
Originally, Nintendo said only 160,000 accounts were involved, but has revised the number after continuing its investigation.
Nintendo says only a small number of the hacked accounts were used to make fraudulent purchases, and refunds to those customers are nearly complete.
The company is e-mailing affected users, and urging them to change their passwords.
