Oh, you mean the hacking that was denied about the session id being hijacked to grab an account?

Or is this some completely different hack that they are finally admitting?

This has nothing to do with just hijacking accounts, bug exploits, keylogging people, or any of the excuses dreamed up by incompetent users. It's an actual unauthorized access of their databases that occurred on or around August 4th. Nasty bit of business.

Someone got email addresses, security questions, passwords (encrypted, not stored plaintext), and mobile and dial-in authenticator info (not the little keyfob ones though) My guess is that means the serial # associated with the account.

How to become an "indie game developer": Dye your hair a bright color, take a strategically angled profile pic, create a Tumblr account, fight on Twitter all day, and under NO CIRCUMSTANCES ever create an actual game.
