Bethesda’s just confirmed that hackers have managed to breach its websites, stealing personal data belonging to users. The Brink stats site was also breached.
No credit card information or other financial data was stolen, however. In light of the hack, Bethesda’s advising all its users to change their passwords for its websites including its community forums and the statistics site for Brink, also warning gamers to “keep an eye out for suspicious emails and account activity.”
Meanwhile, hacker group Lulz Sec has taken responsibility, after it tweeted over the weekend that their next target was the game Brink and the company Bethesda.
“We were going to keep this little treasure chest to ourselves, but it appears the hand has been bitten. Say your prayers, Brink users. >:],” said the group via twitter.
Adding: “Big lulz coming up in the near future. Time to show these bitches how itâ€™s done. #Brink #Bethesda #ZeniMax.”
