Codemasters is a game developing company that’s been in operation since 1986, and the company recently confirmed that it was hacked on Friday, June 3.According to an email sent to its customers, a hacker was able to gain access to a laundry list of information:
- members’ names
- email addresses
- telephone numbers
- order history
- dates of birth
- encrypted passwords
- any biographies entered by users
- details of last site activity
- IP addresses
Despite the extensive compromised data, Codemasters assures its customers that no payment information or credit card numbers were accessed, as it uses a third party to handle transactions.
Are we seeing a new trend in hacking game companies? First it was Sony. Now this.
