Ubisoft website compromised, passwords, usernames and email addresses accessed

Ubisoft has revealed via an email to customers that some of its Web sites were recently exploited to gain unauthorised access to some of its online systems. 

According to a statement from the company it "instantly took steps" to close off this access, to begin a thorough investigation with relevant authorities, internal and external security experts, and to start restoring the integrity of any compromised systems.

"During this process, we learned that data were illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. No personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion."

It is recommended that you now change your password.

People always go on about online security and how to keep your data safe online, maybe they should teach these big companies how to do it because they always seem to leak my data for me no matter how secure I keep my own data.

Big companies are always going to be the first targeted though. No matter how secure systems are, there are always people who can get in there.
