Bethesda website hack
Bethesda has confirmed that over the past weekend a hacker group "attempted an unlawful intrusion" of its websites.
Speaking on its official blog, Bethesda said that "While no personal financial information or credit card data was obtained, the hackers may have gained access to some user names, email addresses, and/or passwords."
It has advised users to change their passwords on all Bethesda sites, and any other site for which they use a similar username, password, or email address.
The attacks were preceded by a series of Twitter threats,according to VG24/7. The hacker group Lulz Sec tweeted on June 12: "We were going to keep this little treasure chest to ourselves, but it appears the hand has been bitten. Say your prayers, Brink users. >:]"
This was soon followed by "Big lulz coming up in the near future. Time to show these bitches how it's done. #Brink #Bethesda #ZeniMax".
Bethesda also advised users to keep an "eye out for suspicious emails and account activity."
