A hacker has leaked today the usernames and passwords of nearly 23 million players of Webkinz World, an online children’s game managed by Canadian toy company Ganz. The Webkinz game launched in 2005 as the online counterpart of a line of Ganz plush toys. Users could enter a code from their plush toy on the Webkinz website where they could play and manage a version of their toy in the form of a virtual pet. The game has been one of the most successful online children’s games of the past decade next to Disney’s Club Penguin.
