Ubisoft has decided to reset all passwords for company services after detecting “a cyber security incident” last week.
The French company, responsible for titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry or Rainbow Six, has admitted that this has caused problems in its services, including several games.
As they have all been found, the incident is still under investigation. The important thing, in any case, is that Ubisoft has insisted that there is no indication that any personal information was deemed to be affected by this situation.
The press release issued by the company explains that “Last week, Ubisoft experienced a security incident which caused temporary issues in some of our games, systems and services. Our IT teams are working with external experts to investigate the issue. As a precaution, we have initiated an enterprise-level review of infringement.”
“We can also confirm that all of our games and services are operating normally and that there is at this time no evidence that any players’ personal information has been exposed as a result of this incident.”
As we always recommend in these cases, without restriction, we recommend that you change the password as long as before, and if it is the same as the one you use in other services (which you should not not do), change it too to avoid possible problems.
