Funcom to Players - All Forum Data Compromised

Posted Aug 24, 2016 by Suzie Ford

Funcom to Players - All Forum Data Compromised

Funcom has posted a warning to players of all of it's games (The Secret World, Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, Longest Journey) that forum account data has been accessed by a third party. This includes email addresses, user names, encrypted passwords and came at the hands of a security flaw in the company's vBulletin forums.

As a temporary security measure, we have reset all passwords for every forum account onTheSecretWorld.comAgeofConan.comAnarchy-Online.com and LongestJourney.com. The next time you try to log in you will be told your password is incorrect and you will have to reset your password to continue. If you have used your old forum account password on your Funcom game account or any non-Funcom accounts, you should also change your password on those immediately. 

We take this incident very seriously and will be taking measures to ensure it does not happen again. The bug that made this data breach possible has been corrected, but as a precaution we have taken our forums offline so we can conduct further investigations and ensure there are no more security issues before we bring them online again. 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. If you wish to talk to us, please get in touch with our customer service representatives via http://help.funcom.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
