Another week, another hack – this time it’s the Trion Worlds account database that holds RIFT player information.
“The database in question contained information including user names, encrypted passwords, dates of birth, email addresses, billing addresses, and the first and last four digits and expiration dates of customer credit cards,” says a notice to players.
The statements says there’s no evidence of full card information being accessed but are forcing a password reset for all users on next login.
“If you have used your username and password for other accounts, especially financial accounts or accounts with personal information, we suggest you change your passwords on those accounts as well,” continues the release.
Anyone still repeating passwords these days? Make sure every password for every site and service is unique.
“We recommend that you carefully review your statements, account activity, and credit reports to help protect the security of those accounts,” say Trion Worlds, offering up advice to those concerned about ID theft.
RIFT players are being granted three days bonus playtime and a Moneybags Purse which increases funds from looting by 10%.
