The latest major video game company to get pounded by hackers is Ubisoft. Emails have been sent out to users recommending that everyone change their passwords. Thankfully, nobody’s payment information was compromised in the hack as such data is not stored on the site, but Ubisoft still recommends the update.
Here is the mail that was sent:
We recently found that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of our online systems. We instantly took steps to close off this access, investigate the incident and begin restoring the integrity of any compromised systems.
During this process, we learned that data had been illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. Please note that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion.
We sincerely apologize to all of you for the inconvenience. Please rest assured that your security remains our priority.
Check your inbox or spam folders for anything from Ubisoft, because it provides an easy link to update your password.
