Ubisoft site exploited, data illegally accessed

In email to users today Ubisoft has announced that recently their website was exploited to gain unauthorised access to some online systems. They say they took steps to close off access, investigate and began restoring the integrity of the compromised systems. Ubisoft says that data such as user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords has been accessed, and they urge that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, so credit/debit card information is safe.

The company recommends all users change passwords to be safe.
