All Change, Please.
Ubisoft have confirmed that one of its websites was compromised and a whole bunch of user data -- names, addresses, passwords -- has been stolen by hackers who breached the Uplay servers.
"We are recommending you to change your password," the company said in a statement that appears to be temporarily available. "Out of an abundance of caution, we also recommend that you change your password on any other Web site or service where you use the same or a similar password."
Ubisoft have set up a dedicated page for rapid password changing on Uplay accounts, and you can do so here. The company reports that financial data and personal payment information is not stored with Ubisoft and is therefore safe at this time.
This is not the first time that Uplay has been compromised. Ubisoft fielded criticism at the start of the year over account hijacking, and one particular glaring hole in the system led to an incorrectly-coded browser plugin last year which could be used to launch .exe files on remote systems. [via]
