Ubisoft have just announced a security incident where one of their websites was breached. They report that data was illegally accessed from their database, but your credit card information is safe.
If you have a uPlay account, it’s recommended that you change your password. You can check out their statement below.
We recently found that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of our online systems. We instantly took steps to close off this access, to begin a thorough investigation with relevant authorities, internal and external security experts, and to start restoring the integrity of any compromised systems.
During this process, we learned that data were illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. No personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion.
We will keep you updated, stay tuned to Gamechup.
