Last Tuesday, game developer Ubisoft sent out a warning that one of their websites was breached due to unauthorized access. As a result, personal user information such as usernames, email address, and encrypted passwords were revealed. In an advisory forum, the company noted:

We instantly took step 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.

There were no words as to what particular Ubisoft website was breached, as well as how long it’s been under attack. However, a new splash page was being shown to users, redirecting them to the main website, and asking them to change their password. The advisory even insisted o change the same password that they’re using on any website or services.

Prior to this, Ubisoft shut down its Uplay service in April after it hackers gained accessed on it. This enabled the culprits to download games for free, including those that are yet to be released.
