We’re all sure you never played Evony, the bland, top-down MMORTS once notorious for its bizarrely sexualized ads (“Start your journey now, my lord!” displayed atop heaving cleavage). But if maybe your friend ever played it, now’s the time to let him know that his account’s been compromised in addition to his dignity. According to Have I Been Pwned?,
“In June 2016, the online multiplayer game Evony was hacked and over 29 million unique accounts were exposed. The attack led to the exposure of usernames, email and IP addresses and MD5 hashes of passwords (without salt).”
Bit4Id’s Pierluigi Paganini puts the count at 33 million hacked, factoring in a forum breach in August that tacked on another million. “At the time I was writing it is not clear is the Evony company has alerted its registered users,” he notes, and we didn’t see a mention on the official forums either, but it probably should get on that, since the data were stored in such a way that hackers have already easily decrypted them.
So, you know, tell your… friend to shore up his accounts. My lord.
