Bethesda Hacked

The Bethesda Blog reveals that Bethesda's sites were the latest victims in the recent rash of data breaches on gaming websites. Here's word:

Over the past weekend, a hacker group attempted an unlawful intrusion of our websites to gain access to data. We believe we have taken appropriate action to protect our data against these attacks. While no personal financial information or credit card data was obtained, the hackers may have gained access to some user names, email addresses, and/or passwords. As a precaution, we recommend that all our fans immediately change passwords on all our sites ó including our community forums, statistics site, and here on the blog.

If your username/email address/password is similar to what you use on other sites, we recommend changing the password at those sites as well. As we donít know what further plans the hackers may have, we suggest that you keep an eye out for suspicious emails and account activity.

the hackers (lulzsec) have repeatedly stated that they will not release the user data gained from the bethesda/zenimax hack. check out their twitter and pastebin activity if you want to verify it for yourself.

i have mixed feelings about these hacks. in away they are good - pointing out glaring security holes to companies that should be doing a better job of protecting their (and our) data. on the other hand, they create more chaos than necessary by publicizing results in the pursuit of validation and/or celebrity.

no matter how i feel, it is an entertaining spectacle. this sort of global-tech mischief is something that was limited to sci-fi just 10 or 20 years ago.
