Ubisoft Hacked – Account Data Accessed

Posted by at 11:01 am on July 2, 2013


An unnamed Ubisoft website has been hacked, and usernames, email addresses and password information has been compromised. Ubisoft claims that no finanical information was obtained but in an “abundance of caution” wants folks to change their passwords.

While Ubisoft’s Uplay service is never mentioned specifically, as the only system housing customer data, it’s a safe bet Uplay was used to access this information. Last year, a browser exploit was identified with the Uplay plug-in that endangered users by allowing certain malicious websites access to player computers.

Ubisoft introduced Uplay back in 2009 as a cross-game interface allowing for digital distribution and social services across Ubisoft games. In February, Ubisoft added third-party games from studios including EA, Warner Bros. and Focus Home Interactive.
