If you use Ubisoft’s Play service, or any of their websites, you must change your account passwords as soon as possible. That is according to an email Ubisoft sent out to all of its users, as one of their websites was hacked yesterday and access to a database of customer email addresses, account names and encrypted account passwords was illegally gained by unknown persons.
They advised people to change their Ubisoft account passwords as soon as possible, especially if they use the same password for other services. Your credit card information is safe, however, as the company doesn’t store that information anywhere on their systems.
If you haven’t already, check your email account associated with Ubisoft’s services for the mail the company sent out warning users of the hack, and follow the link provided to reset your password.
This isn’t the first time the company has been hacked. Back in 2010, a group of hackers compromised Ubisoft’s main website in protest against the always-online requirement of some of the company’s latest games.
