Database was hacked.
The WarZ hack recently was an unfortunate thing but user details weren’t compromised according to OP Productions, the publisher of the game. The same thing happened with the PSN hack but that was a massive attack which Sony successfully dodged but there were no reports of compromised credit card details.
“We did not find definitive evidence that our game account database was accessed. They were able to ban up to several dozens of players randomly,” the publisher’s statement read (via Eurogamer)
“We disabled the hacked accounts, identified the wrongly banned players and reversed those bans within hours of the attack. We are continuing to invest significant resources to make our system even more secure.
“We all know that the online world is never 100 per cent secure against aggressive and sophisticated hackers. This experience has been a humbling one for your War Z Team. We have recommitted ourselves to providing a secure and enjoyable game for our players. We will keep working to improve our game and our security in keeping with that commitment. We are sincerely sorry that this incident occurred and greatly appreciate the loyalty of our players.”
This is good news for people who were worried about their details being compromised, since it doesn’t look like it was.
