BioWare the Latest Victim of Rampant Hacking
Posted on Thursday, June 16 @ 08:24:33 PST by Anthony Severino
This hacking stuff is totally out of control. The latest to feel the wrath of pissed off hackers is BioWare, creators of Mass Effect, Dragon Age and a number of other well-known game series.
BioWare made this statement, alerting users of the hack:
Yesterday (June 14), we learned that a hacker gained unauthorized access to the decade-old BioWare community server system associated with the Neverwinter Nights forums. We immediately took appropriate steps to protect our consumers' data and launched an ongoing evaluation of the seriousness of the breach. We have determined that no credit card data was compromised, nor did we ever have or store sensitive data like social security numbers.Since the PSN hacking fiasco, it seems that almost every day a new hack has been uncovered by a new video game studio or publisher.
In related news, LulzSec, the hackers responsible for a number of the recent attacks is claiming to have successfully attacked the CIA's website cia.gov. Their reasoning? "For the lulz."
