EVE Online: Hacked?

EVE[EVE Online] According to the latest news out of CCP, there has been some sort of hacking incident and 57 accounts have been tampered with. They are encouraging everyone to change their passwords and several accounts have had the passwords reset automatically.

Important Announcement

This morning we have been investigating a number of account hack attempts. 57 accounts were compromised and as a result, we started full investigation and lockdown procedures. This culminated in the lockdown of Tranquility during downtime until we had finished our investigation.

As a preventive measure, to ensure account security, we have reset passwords and will send out an email to selected accounts and ask them to change their passwords. At the same time, we would like to remind all our customers to never give out their passwords and regularly change them in account management. Remember, we will never ask you for your password.

We want to emphasize that we do not store billing information, the only risk was concerning password usage and subsequent abuse of the accounts in question.

  1. I’ve got my password changed …and I reset it back to how it was.

    I’m not going to waste precious space in my brain to remember another password.

  2. Hmmm I wonder how many phishing e-mails will be sent out now asking EVE subscribers for their new passwords after confirming their old one :P Harar!

  3. I didn’t get mine reset but I did change all of mine. Two of my corp mates were locked out though. And our recruitment mail has gotten the phishing mails several times. They are fairly well done, not that well, but well enough to grab morons.

  4. I got my password changed, and I changed it back to the same thing with a capital letter or two – since been hacked to the tune of 200m – and the gits blew my inty up too…
