Sega to Investigate Rumored Sonic Game Data Leak

A security company called Pradeo reported last week that several Sega games for Android: Sonic Dash, Sonic the Hedgehog Classic, and Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom had been leaking the sensitive data of around 120 million to 600 users who had downloaded it from Google’s Play Store.

According to the security company, the games were leaking user location data and device information. They additionally found a number of other security vulnerabilities, and said that the games had around 15 vulnerabilities each.

Sega responded and said that any third party partner caught collecting, transmitting, or using data in a manner that is not allowed by the company’s privacy policy will be subject to prompt corrective action.
