“According to our investigation all usernames, emails and passwords from forums.dayzgame.com were accessed and downloaded by hackers,” the DayZ gang say in a statement. They first detected the intrusion on January 23rd, but have now completed their investigation and are apologising and frowning.

“While the passwords were not stored in plain text, but in a more secure form, it is highly recommended that if you have used the same password elsewhere you change it immediately on all applicable websites and services.”

I got the Email last week about this and was pretty ticked off about it. Ended up changing all my login/passwords for the 3rd time in 6 months due to a security issue at a website.

The entire Dayz development just keeps rubbing salt in the wounds of everyone who bought the alpha.

Still unfortunate though because this will delay the next hat update.

This sounds kind of suspicious, as if they actually have been stored in plain text but don't want to tell us that. I'd imagine if they were stored securely then they would be safe even if they were stolen.

LOL, I forgot that I actually bought into the Alpha of this game and haven't touched it in a very long time. The last time I tried to play was exactly like the first time I played it.
