Ubisoft Website Hacked, User Info Compromised

Posted on Tuesday, July 2 @ 11:37:14 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Ubisoft's website has been hacked, potentially compromising a number of users' personal information including email addresses, usernames, and passwords.

The publisher has sent out an email to its users alerting them of the security breach and recommending that they change their password. A portion of the message reads:

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.

Ubisoft is also suggesting, because you can never be too cautious, that you change your password elsewhere should it be the same or similar to the one you've been using to log in to their site.

So what are you waiting for? Change those passwords!
