Bethesda has become the latest victim in the increasingly more common hacking of websites, particularly in gaming. The Bethesda Blog recently updated with details on the attempt.
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, statistics site for Brink, and here on the blog.
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.
Stay tuned to the Bethesda Blog
for more updates as they attempt to find out the full extent of the damage, and be sure to follow through with their password reset suggestions. We'll update with more when we have it, also.
