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.┬áThe 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- ┬ádetailing 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.

        Anony doesn’t know what the hell he is saying.He thinks that by trying to pose as a member of anonymous people will believe his bs.Ubi got hacked for the same reason most companies get hacked,so some dbag can score some personal info or credit card numbers.Because the hackers are just common thieves.It has nothing to do with what platform they decided to release the division on.And the gang of fag remark is just anony proving he is a homophobic little 12 yr old that apparently has terrible parents.And whatever state he lives in should step in and remove him and any siblings he has from their home cause parents that let their kids act that way shouldn’t be parents.
