Bethesda Warns Of User Data Breach

Video game publisher Bethesda has warned customers that some of their data - including user names, e-mail addresses and passwords - may have been compromised in an attack on the company's servers. While no financial or credit card information was revealed in the attack, Bethesda said, the company is recommending all users change their passwords on both Bethesda's sites and any other sites that share the same login information. "As we don’t know what further plans the hackers may have, we suggest that you keep an eye out for suspicious emails and account activity," the company wrote in an official blog post. "We regret any inconvenience that these attacks on us cause for you. These attacks will be evaluated to determine if there are any additional protections we might take that would be prudent." A series of tweets from hacker collective Lulzsec Sunday seemed to indicate the group's involvement in the attacks. "We did it because they couldn't stop us - and did it we did, as you'll see," the group tweeted early Monday morning. "We always deliver." This latest attack comes following a series of hacks revealing user data stored by video game companies. High-profile attacks on Sony's PSN and SOE servers have been the largest, but the web sites for Eidos, Codemasters and Nintendo have also been compromised in recent weeks. Spanish police recently arrested three people who allegedly directed the attacks on Sony's servers on behalf of hacking collective Anonymous. Spokespeople for the group have repeatedly denied their involvement in the attacks.
