Ubisoft Hacked: Usernames, Emails and Passwords Stolen
Ubisoft has alerted its users to a hack it uncovered which has compromised the company's account database. According to Ubisoft, the company recently found one of their websites had been exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of their online systems. The compromised database holds usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords, but does not hold any personal payment information. An email went out earlier today to everyone who has a Uplay account -Ubisoft's game portal- detailing what happened and recommending everyone to change their account password.
Uplay is used for many of Ubisoft's games including Free-to-Play titles such as Ghost Recon Online, Anno Online, and The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot whose Open House beta event is currently underway.
Wargaming recently suffered a similar breach in which some passwords and emails were also exposed. The company prompted users to change their passwords and those that did were rewarded with 300 gold for World of Tanks. Ubisoft has not revealed whether they plan on offering any sort of compensation.
Those of you who have a Uplay account should have received an email with the appropriate link to change your password.
