Ubisoft website hacked into, account information accessed so change your passwords

Tuesday, 2nd July 2013 17:40 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Ubisoft has announced it recently that one of its websites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to online systems. While the firm has closed off this access, and has started a “thorough investigation with relevant authorities,” internal and external security experts recommended everyone change their passwords.

While the firm is focused on”restoring the integrity of any compromised systems,” the firm said since data illegally accessed from the account database includes user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords, it would be best to change any Ubisoft website password, and probably your Uplay password as well just to be safe – although the online service was not mentioned in the press release.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we also recommend that you change your password on any other website or service where you use the same or a similar password,” said the firm.

No personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, do your debit and/or credit card information is safe.

Passwords can be changed here and more information is through here.

    I hate Ubi and their Uplay service. I never buy their games, no matter how fucking good one may be.
