Codemasters Servers Hacked

Posted Jun 10, 2011 by Suzie Ford

Codemasters Servers Hacked

In another in a continuing series of hacker exploits, Codemasters has sent word that its servers have been breached. In "one of those emails you hate to receive", Codemasters acknowledged that its website, eStore and CodeM database have all been accessed.

Codemasters CodeM database

Members' names, usernames, screen names, email addresses, date of birth, encrypted passwords, newsletter preferences, any biographies entered by users, details of last site activity, IP addresses and Xbox Live Gamertags are all believed to have been compromised.

Whilst we do not have confirmation that any of this data was actually downloaded onto an external device, we have to assume that, as access was gained, all of these details were compromised and/or stolen.

The Codemasters.com website will remain offline for the foreseeable future with all Codemasters.com traffic re-directed to the Codemasters Facebook page instead. A new website will launch later in the year.

If you have any Codemasters accounts, keep an eye on your email for more information as it becomes available.

Thanks to Ludipe for the tip.
