Wargaming is asking World of Tanks players to change their passwords after a “security incident” occurred in which player email addresses and hashed passwords may have been compromised. No financial information was compromised. As an incentive to change user passwords, and likely a ‘sorry for your trouble’ type of thing, Wargaming is giving players who change their passwords 300 in-game gold. Thanks, Eurogamer.
