Ch4nge Your P4ssw0rd: Ubisoft Servers Hacked, Login Details Nicked

By Gary Cutlack on at

Gaming giant Ubisoft is at the centre of a new gaming hack attack, with the game maker telling players that "user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords" have been pulled from one of its servers.

The company has reassured its users that no credit card data was stored on its servers, so that's a plus. Ubisoft suggests everyone with any form of account with it changes their username and password, plus if you're a bad, bad person who uses that same username and password combination across many sites, you might want to change them too, as your insecure pairing might be about to appear in a torrent file.
