Bethesda has revealed that their official forums have been breached and that their user database may have been compromised.

The company are currently sending out emails to members informing them of the breach and that their current passwords have been reset as a precaution.

Bethesda’s Community Manager posted on the official forums;

We have reset your forum password as a precaution, in the event that any encrypted forum user passwords were compromised.

When you next try to login to the forums, your old password will not work. Click the Ive forgotten my password link above, underneath the login boxes, and follow the steps to setup a new password for your account.

We recommend you do not use your old password or a password you have used for other sites. Further, if your old forum password was used for any other online purposes, we recommend changing the password on those accounts as well.

You will also receive an email with this information, sent to the email address you registered with on the forums.

So be sure to check your email in order to get your new password.
