Ubisoft Offers Update on Recent Cyber Attack
Password resets incoming
Ubisoft became the latest victim in cyber attacks on high profile tech companies last week. But in an update posted on their news website, it appears the damage was minimal.
Last week, Ubisoft experienced a cyber security incident that caused temporary disruption to some of our games, systems, and services. Our IT teams are working with leading external experts to investigate the issue. As a precautionary measure we initiated a company-wide password reset. Also, we can confirm that all our games and services are functioning normally and that at this time there is no evidence any player personal information was accessed or exposed as a by-product of this incident.
Aside from a few required password resets and a brief hiccup in online services, it is believed there was no sensitive customer data was breached.
Ubisoft’s big Nintendo Switch game - Mario + Rabbids: Spark of Hope - is still on track for release in 2022, as is the latest installment of their yearly Just Dance franchise.
