As reported on by Eurogamer, World of Tanks has suffered an “incident”. While exact details are sparse, Wargaming has confirmed that some personal information including passwords and email addresses were compromised however no financial details were obtained.

In an announcement on the official World of Tanks website, Wargaming stated: “As a part of our usual security practices we recently became aware that some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident. We immediately launched an investigation into the incident and can assure you that no financial information was accessed. However, we believe that some password hashes and email addresses may have been affected by the compromise.”

Wargaming is urging all players to reset their Wargaming ID account password as soon as possible. To encourage users to do so the company has initiated a “Change Your Password Event” whereby players who update their account password are rewarded with 300 gold.
