Wargaming.net has announced that some of the user information of World of Tank‘s 45 million player base may have been compromised.

“As a part of usual security practices, we recently became aware that some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident,” the developer said.

“We immediately launched an investigation into the incident and can assure you that no financial information was accessed. However, we believe that some password hashes and email addresses were affected by the compromise.”

The developer is urging all players to change their password immediately, doing so will earn you 300 Gold.

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.
