Ubisoft has revealed that one of its sites has been hacked, resulting in some customer data being access.
In an email to its customers, Ubisoft said that a security issue in one of its websites was exploited.
“We recently found that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorised access to some of our online systems. We instantly took steps to close off this access, investigate the incident and begin restoring the integrity of any compromised systems.
“During this process, we learned that data had been illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. Please note that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion.
“As a result, we are recommending that you change the password for your account.
“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.
