Hackers on a roll – Epic Games site and forums hacked

It would seem that following the hack attack against Sony and the Playstation Network gaming company sites have become a real juicy target for hackers.

Earlier today my colleague Daniel McCall posted about the hacking of the English game company Codemaster’s site getting hack and now we have word that fellow gaming company Epic Games has suffered the same fate.

Best known for the Gears of War franchise Epic Games notified its forum members that both the forums and the website had been successfully attacked. Fortunately no credit card information was lost but user names, email addresses, and encrypted passwords were taken.

As per usual Epic Games is recommending that you might think about changing your passwords if you have used their site in the past. In the meantime the company has forced a password reset for all the forum members.
