Hackers Steal Members’ Personal Info From Codemasters Site

Following a string of online security breaches for video game publishers, Codemasters has revealed that hackers broke into its site and gained access to its members’ personal information last week.

UK-based Codemasters investigated the extent and scope of the June 3rd attack, and says the hackers were able to access its corporate site and sub-domains, its Dirt 3 VIP code redemption page, and more.

It believes that member data from its EStore was compromised, including customer names and addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, encrypted passwords, and order histories — though Codemasters claims personal payment details were not stored or at risk.

The firm admitted that its CodeM database was breached, too, allowing access to member names, usernames, screen names, email addresses, date of birth, encrypted passwords, newsletter preferences, user biographies, IP address, and Xbox Live Gamertags.

Codemasters says it cannot confirm if the hackers actually downloaded all of this information, but it is erring on the side of caution and assuming that all this data was compromised and/or stolen.
