Ubisoft has confirmed that both it’s Uplay and web accounts have been hacked, and that both usernames and passwords have been breached as a result. Ubisoft addressed the issue in an email to its users that read:
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”
So if you have a Ubisoft or Uplay account you should change the password immediately, Ubisoft also recommends that if you have any other accounts that use the same email or password you should change that too. But this is the third time that Ubisoft has been hacked this year already, is it really acceptable?
