DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive told users last night that its forums had been hacked. Actually, it was hacked well over a week ago, which it obliquely referred to on Twitter, but last night was the first full confirmation of the “security incident” and what precisely was taken.
“According to our investigation all usernames, emails and passwords from forums.dayzgame.com were accessed and downloaded by hackers,” says the company. “While the passwords were not stored in plain text, but in a more secure form, it is highly recommended that if you have used the same password elsewhere you change it immediately on all applicable websites and services.”
Bohemia says it’s replacing the forum login system with a new Bohemia Account system. In the meantime, time to change your passwords.
