World of Tanks accounts hacked

by

World of Tanks publisher, Wargaming has announced that they have been victims of a hacking attempt. According to their statement, no financial information was compromised but they believe that users’ passwords and emails are affected by this hacking attempt.

To encourage players to change their password, Wargaming is launching a new event, called the Change Your Password Event, where they will be given free in-game gold if they change their passwords.

Also, should you be using the same passwords and emails on other sites, you are strongly advised to change those as well.
