One of Ubisoft’s databases with usernames and passwords has been hacked. The company has released a statement on Tuesday to confirm the news. It also revealed that an investigation had begun. For this reason, the publisher of Far Cry 3 has asked users to change their passwords.
Ubisoft said in a blog post: We recently discovered that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of our online systems. We instantly took steps to close this off and to begin a thorough investigation with the relevant authorities, internal and external security experts, and to start restoring the integrity of any systems that may have been compromised.
This is the second time this year that Ubisoft has been targeted. In April, software pirates hacked Uplay launcher to access Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon title and released the code onto torrent sites. Ubisoft responded by saying: "We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it quickly. No personal information was compromised."
