Gearbox’s Shift Has Been Compromised

Just in Gearbox’s Shift that they use for Golden Keys in Borderlands and other means in Gearbox games has been compromised. You will probably soon receive an email as I did a few minutes ago.

The email states the following…

Dear SHiFT user,

At Gearbox, we value our community and strive to protect the information provided to us by our fans.

Recently, a security issue known as Heartbleed was discovered. This issue impacted Amazon Web Services, the service that powers Gearbox’s SHiFT system. Gearbox has taken steps to correct systems exposed to the issue by patching affected software and rotating potentially compromised SSL certificates.

As a result of Heartbleed, many of our fans have already changed their passwords. If you have not already done so, please continue reading.

While it doesn’t appear that any user passwords were compromised, we nonetheless recommend that all community members reset their SHiFT account passwords as a precautionary measure. You can do so by opening this link.

Thank God they caught it before it was a big problem. To the producers of Heartbleed..ADG says get a life.
