France-based Ubisoft best known for its Assassin's Creed, Just Dance, Splinter Cell and Far Cry franchises has been hacked.
Although Debit / Credit card details seem to be safe usernames, email addresses, and passwords were sniffed. It seems the leaks are coming through “Add-ons” as Malware, and at one time there was a compromise on a game release.
Ubisoft has a 58 million strong database of registered users, and although they have a strategy to “Strengthen” security measures, it seems that hackers out there are playing a Game of their own, “who can crack Ubisoft”. In the end its the Users / Clients / Customers that get exposed having their vital details stolen. After reading through the forum (really recommend) a question that came up in our Team's meeting today was how can we “Strengthen” our security measures with regards to our digital projects?
