Assassin’s Creed developer hacked, user data exposed

Ubisoft Hacked User Data Exposed

Ubisoft, the game developer behind the popular Assassin’s Creed franchise, announced on Tuesday that its servers have been hacked by an unknown party and that an undisclosed number of its users’ accounts have been compromised. The company said that some user data “had been illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords,” although thankfully users’ credit card and payment information were not exposed. Ubisoft recommends that its users change their passwords both for their Ubisoft accounts and for “any other Web site or service where you use the same or a similar password.”
