Ubisoft's website has been hacked, leading to user's account information being accessed and therefore compromised. While Ubi has commenced a “thorough investigation with relevant authorities,” security experts have recommended that users change their passwords as soon as possible, as the company works on ”restoring the integrity of any compromised systems.”
You can change your Ubisoft password here. We suggest doing so now, if you can. Thankfully, no personal payment data is stored on the site, so debit or credit card information is safe from the breach. User names, email addresses and encrypted passwords meanwhile are not safe, hence Ubi's advisement that users change their passwords.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we also recommend that you change your password on any other website or service where you use the same or a similar password,” reads the press release. For more information, you can read the Ubisoft support post here.
