The information was provided recently citing the breach where the intruder in question accessed user profile data. This includes email addresses in addition to encrypted passwords. However, these passwords cannot be used to access Albion Online or forums. All that said, the team still states there is a chance that these intruders can identify accounts with weak passwords.

To that end, you should change your password as a safety measure. To do that, go here. Fortunately, the team appear to have closed off the vulnerability in their database, while they continue checking their tech. A full retrospective review is also in the works to understand why this happened in an effort to hopefully prevent this from happening again.
