World of Tanks passwords hacked. Wargaming advise changing them


Wargaming have discovered a security leak within their account database that could mean their users account passwords have been compromised. The publisher has advised that everyone change their password and, if you use the same password for any other pages, that you change those, too.

Wargaming assure us that “no financial information was accessed” but “some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident”. They believe that the pertinent data that was scraped from their database was “some password hashes and email addresses”.

So, get thinking of a new fairytale character to use as a password because Dopey’s no longer safe.

In unrelated news, if you’re looking to get into it, we’ve 600 World of Warplanes beta keys to give away.

Cheers, CVG.
