Bethesda Softworks

Yesterday, infamous hacker group called LulzSec announced that it would attempt to hack into Bethesda Softworks servers.

Big lulz coming up in the near future. Time to show these bitches how it's done. #Brink #Bethesda #ZeniMax http://t.co/St9EPzn

Matt Grandstaff has stated on Bethesda Blog that the attack was indeed successful and that the user account information was compromised.

Over the past weekend, a hacker group attempted an unlawful intrusion of our websites to gain access to data. We believe we have taken appropriate action to protect our data against these attacks. While no personal financial information or credit card data was obtained, the hackers may have gained access to some user names, email addresses, and/or passwords. As a precaution, we recommend that all our fans immediately change passwords on all our sites — including our community forums and the statistics site we maintain for Brink players.

If your username/email address/password is similar to what you use on other sites, we recommend changing the password at those sites as well. As we don’t know what further plans the hackers may have, we suggest that you keep an eye out for suspicious emails and account activity.

We regret any inconvenience that these attacks on us cause for you. These attacks will be evaluated to determine if there are any additional protections we might take that would be prudent.

Remember to change your passwords immediately, including your Wikia passwords if you happened to use the same password here as in Bethesda forum.
