If you play World of Tanks, listen up. Developer Wargaming is urging everyone to change their passwords, after a possible breach of security, “may have compromised,” user information. It's unknown at this point what if any information was taken by those responsible for the breach, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
Wargaming said in a statement: “As a part of usual security practices, we recently became aware that some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident. 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.”
As an added incentive to change your password – beyond not having your account hacked and stolen – Wargaming is gifting those that do, 300 in-game Gold, which according to CVG is enough to get yourself a Premium Account for one day, giving you the chance to research new vehicles far quicker than on standard accounts.
KitGuru Says: Not a big story this, but worth getting out there. Be safe guys, change your passwords.
