Cryptic Studios Was Hacked…In 2010…

MMO Fallout's reporter in the field fails us once again...

In case there is any confusion, you are indeed reading an article posted on April 25th, 2012, for an announcement that was posted on April 25th of the same year. Cryptic Studios has announced via their corporate website that an unknown user gained unauthorized access to their servers in December 2010, analysis of which has only just come back recently.

The unauthorized access included user account names, handles, and encrypted passwords for those accounts. Even though the passwords were encrypted, it is apparent that the intruder has been able to crack some portion of the passwords in this database. All accounts that we believe were present in the database have had the passwords reset, and customers registered to these accounts have been notified via e-mail of this incident.

If you have  a Star Trek Online or Champions Online account dating back to December 2010, it is strongly suggested that you secure any other accounts that share the same email address/username/password.
