Alright gang, it’s that point once more — notably when you play Albion Online. It’s time to alter your password. Over the weekend, Sandbox Interactive discovered a breach in one of their systems, which some nefarious particular person did use to realize entry to discussion board consumer profiles. The data included e-mail addresses related to the discussion board customers.
In addition they managed to snag encrypted passwords. Whereas these can’t be used to really log into something, or — in response to the put up within the Albion On-line discussion board — truly study the passwords, they do counsel discussion board customers change them anyway. Mainly, they determine a few of us are tremendous lazy and opted for easy passwords that may be discovered.
As for what they’re doing, the dev workforce has already addressed the difficulty and are doing a little further work to ensure there’s nothing else gamers have to fret about. Earlier than you ask, there doesn’t seem like something in the way in which of in-game compensation “on your troubles” talked about. However if you wish to hold observe of what’s occurring, there’s a Forum Vulnerability Discussion Thread going in the intervening time.
