Ubisoft website hacked
The company currently developing a game about hacking has been hacked?
It appears an Aiden Pearce wannabe has cracked the system and gained “unauthorized access” to some of Ubisoft’s online systems. All usernames, email addresses and passwords have potentially been accessed, so users are advised to change their password.
“We recently found that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of our online systems,” Ubisoft said in a email sent to its users. “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.”
