Champions Online : 'Unauthorized Access' Revealed

Posted Apr 26, 2012 by Suzie Ford

The Cryptic Studios page has been updated with the announcement that its servers have been the victim of what the press release calls 'unauthorized access'. More troubling is the further announcement that the attacks began in December of 2010 and resulted in user account names, handles, and encrypted passwords for those accounts being made accessible to the intruders.

The unauthorized access included user account names, handles, and encrypted passwords for those accounts. Even though the passwords were encrypted, it is apparent that the intruder has been able to crack some portion of the passwords in this database. All accounts that we believe were present in the database have had the passwords reset, and customers registered to these accounts have been notified via e-mail of this incident.

Read the full report on the Cryptic Studios page.
