CDProjekt Red Forum Hacked, 1.8M Users' Data Taken -

Have I Been Pwned is reporting that 1.8M users of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt forums have had account data taken during a large-scale hacking event that took place in March 2016. According to HIBP, user names, passwords and email addresses were taken. 

Gamers signed up with Have I Been Pwned received notification this morning about the breach and, when wondering why the length of time between the event and notification, were told:

"Whilst the breach occurred in March 2016, sometimes there can be a lengthy lead time of months or even years before the data is disclosed publicly," the message stated, in an email seen by IT Pro. "Have I Been Pwned? will always attempt to alert you ASAP, it's just a question of how readily available the data is."
