Hackers have broken into the websites for both Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Tomb Raider, making off with the emails of 25,000 customers who had registered for product updates in the process. The resumes of 350 Eidos Montreal employees might have been compromised too, with the hackers accessing the company's web servers.

"Square Enix can confirm a group of hackers gained access to parts of our website as well as two of our product sites," Square Enix confirmed in a statement. "We immediately took the sites offline to assess how this had happened and what had been accessed, then took further measures to increase the security of these and all of our websites, before allowing the sites to go live again."

Both and were affected by the hack and Sophos security consultant Graham Cluley warned that these leaks could cause a number of issues. "With the e-mail there is a danger that gamers could be e-mailed by someone pretending to be from the company who gets them to click on a link or run some malicious software," he told BBC News. "The resumes are a blueprint for identity theft. They have everything that scammers want. The only thing missing is credit card information."

So try and stay vigilant, although Square Enix says that there's no evidence that information has been distributed by the hackers.
