Codemasters has confirmed that their official website, Estore and CodeM database was hacked last week, with a multitude of different user information compromised.
The attack occurred on June 3rd and the UK publisher/developer has sent word to any users that have been affected by the intrusion.
“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,” read a statement issue to users.
“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.”
For your security, in the first instance we advise you to change any passwords you have associated with other Codemasters accounts. If you use the same login information for other sites, you should change that information too.”
Codemasters aren’t the first games company to be targeted by data thieves and we suspect won’t it be the last. However their security staff are taking steps to ensure this kind of intrusion doesn’t happen again.
