Ubisoft Hack Victims Still at Risk, Even After Changing Passwords

Quote:
Yesterday, French video game publisher Ubisoft alerted fans that customer information had been accessed by an attacker. The company advises everyone with an Ubisoft account to log in and change their passwords, but victims might have other dangers ahead.

On the Ubisoft blog, Gary Steinman writes that user names, email addresses, and encrypted passwords were accessed during the intrusion. That's the bad news, but here's the good news: because Ubisoft does not store payment information, no credit card or other sensitive data was accessed.
