Bohemia Interactive Website Hacked, User Info Stolen

Bohemia Interactive’s forums are currently offline and a warning has been posted on its official website about ”an illegal attempt” to access an unnamed website that the company owns.

“We have unfortunately discovered that an illegal attempt has been made to access certain of our online websites, leading to the download of a database containing usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords,” the announcement states. “Please note due to the encryption of the passwords it is very unlikely that anything nefarious can be done with this information.

“We would like to reassure everyone that no other information such as credit card details is stored by us and thus was not at any risk from this illegal breach.”

The statement and password reset emails have been sent to all users “as a precaution.”

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.
