The War Z Offline After Breach

OP Productions has issued a "security alert" for The War Z, saying the game is temporarily offline after the forum and game databases suffered a security breach. They unequivocally state that no payment information was exposed since this is handled on a third-party system, but warn that this means intruders have accessed login email addresses, encrypted forum passwords, encrypted game passwords, and player IP addresses. They add: "If you posted other information to the forum it is likely that such data was accessed as well. We do not collect the names or addresses of our gamers so that information was not impacted unless you posted it on the forum. We are investigating whether additional information may have been obtained." They warn players should use their website to change their passwords, and should also consider changing passwords on any servers where they used the same one (which is why that is inadvisable). Thanks VG247.

don't forget the obvious one: there's no discernable way to access any password reset feature on the website AT ALL. "You may do this by visiting our website or by clicking "Forgot Password" on The War Z launcher screen." they say, but only one of those options exist...

well played.

Christoforo is a psychopath no doubt. Just look at the Hare Psychopathy Checklist and the guy clearly ticks all the boxes. He needs real psychiatric help and is the last guy who should be doing the work he is.

I wasn't aware there were any psychiatric treatments for psychopathy. Society tends to either put them in prison or make them CEO of some corporation or other.

The guy is such an ignorant meathead. It's frustrating reading his email responses without being able to punch him in the face.

I liked the part where he claimed he had successfully snuck into PAX, but the GPS data on the pictures he was uploading showed he was elsewhere.

Damn! Just when you thought this guy couldn't be a bigger tool box!

Thanks nin, I have no idea how I missed out on all this fun. Damn that guy is a seriously douche bag. Pretty fricking arrogant of him to be so bold in his predictions too.

Alright, so payment processing takes place in an automated fashion with anonymized information, well and good, but everything else you mention seems to suggest the company desires to insulate itself from their customers to an irrational degree. It's one thing to say payment information is anonymized, it's another to say they don't keep track of who does or doesn't use their ongoing service; it's speaks a lot of their attitude towards their customer base. Still smells fishy.
