Rift publisher Trion Worlds’ database hacked
No evidence of stolen credit card information.
Trion Worlds, publisher of the MMORPG Rift, joined the list of the companies that faced the wrath of hackers this year yesterday, announcing that their entire database was hacked, potentially leaking information including user names, passwords, email addresses, billing addresses, and first and last four digits of some user credit cards.
However, Trion Worlds maintain that “there is no evidence, and we have no reason to believe, that full credit card information was accessed or compromised in any way.”
“We have already taken further action to strengthen our systems, even as we, with external security experts, continue to research the extent of the unauthorised access,” it added. “We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you.”
“You should have continued, uninterrupted access to Rift, and we do not anticipate any disruptions to your playing time,” Trion said. “Nevertheless, if you own the Rift game, you will be granted three days of complimentary Rift game time once you update your password and security questions.
“Additionally, once you update your account and set a new password, your account will be granted a Moneybags’ Purse, which increases your looted coin by 10%, even if you have not yet purchased Rift.”
Knows how to make a gamer happy, Trion.
