article imageBritish video game publisher hacked

By Holly Goodwin     Jun 11, 2011 in Entertainment
Codemasters, one of the oldest British video game developers, joined the line of other companies that have recently been hacked.
The company, which has been around since the Commodore 64 and publisher of the well-received Overlord series, was victim to a second cyberattack on June 3rd. On May 20th the developer was hacked for the first time, but the company says that only staff information had been taken.
According to Codemasters the hackers gained the personal information of customers such as addresses, names, birth dates, passwords, and email addresses in the recent June 3rd attack, but the company claims that payment data is safe since they use an external provider. They suggest that customers change their passwords and be on the lookout for scammers and warn that the stolen information may be used by identity thieves. Codemasters told BBC that they have no idea who stole the information and don't know exactly how many accounts were compromised.
Other companies that recently suffered cyberattacks include video game publisher Square Enix and Sony.
