Battlelog Hacked, DICE Responds

By
Posted on December 31, 2012 AT 03:22am

A hacked poll appeared on Battlelog over the weekend asking players about the Battlefield 4 beta in an attempt to steal usernames and passwords.

One on the options on the poll pointed to a website which was acting as a sign up page for the beta. DICE has since responded to the poll claiming that no data was compromised and logins are safe.

“No, logins are safe, there should be an announcement soon with more details. Edit: As a side note, it’s never a bad idea to update/change passwords regularly, but as of right now there is no cause for alarm,” the developer wrote on Reddit. “No, no data was compromised, this was simply an account being compromised.”

So no data was stolen, however it’s probably a good idea to keep rotating your password just to be safe.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
