Hack Attack Q&A

Hack Attack Q&A - Runes of Magic -

Frogster has posted a new Q&A with regard to last week's Runes of Magic and Frogster accounts hack by a disgruntled user. The hacker reported that he had taken over account information for all of Frogster's players and made a list of demands. Frogster has posted a new Q&A about new security measures and additional information about account protection on the Runes of Magic European forums.

Have more than 2000 accounts been affected?

We have thoroughly investigated the data and ascertained that only 2000 sets of log-in data have been posted, originating from 2007. This data comes from accounts created before the launch of Runes of Magic. The number of Runes of Magic accounts that have been affected has only run into double digits. In these cases the registered users had added Runes of Magic to their old account with Frogster or the Yusho account system. All the accounts which were compromised by the posts were immediately blocked by us, and we informed the owners of the accounts by email.

Aside from the data already published, we cannot be 100% certain exactly how much data the attacker has in his or her possession. But rest assured, we are doing all we can to get to the bottom of the situation. Unfortunately, since a criminal investigation is currently underway we cannot give you any more information on the matter for the time being.
