Ubisoft Breached, Sensitive Account Data Leaked

Game publisher Ubisoft was breached and unauthorized parties accessed customers’ usernames, e-mail addresses and hashed passwords. Ubisoft urges all account owners to change their passwords at once.

The French firm emailed its customers, informing them that “credentials were stolen and used to illegally access our online network” giving unauthorized people access to users’ accounts. No further details on the attack were given. Currently all compromised systems are closed off and the company is working to restore them.

According to the email, no financial information was reached since Ubisoft has a payment processing company handle money-related data. “Please note that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion” the e-mail reads. “Out of an abundance of caution, we also recommend that you change your password on any other Web site or service where you use the same or a similar password.”

The e-mail includes a link to the company’s support page that people can use for further enquiries and additional information. Ubisoft has also set up a dedicated page to allow users to quickly and safely change their Uplay account passwords.

So use it to immediately restore your account information and make sure you don’t have other accounts with the same password.
