Bethesda’s Official Forums Hacked … Again


The publisher has sent a warning message to all forum users confirming a “potential breach” of the users database. This is the second time Bethesda been a victim of hacker attacks since June. Thankfully, no financial information data was leaked, according to Bethesda, during the attacks on the website and forums. However, some email addresses and passwords may have been stolen.
Here is the full Email sent by Bethesda to all forum users:

Dear Bethesda Forum User,

We have identified a potential breach of our forum user database that occurred Friday morning, Aug 12. We have reset your forum password as a precaution, in the event that any encrypted forum user passwords were compromised.

When you next try to login to the forums, your old password will not work. Click the “I’ve forgotten my password link” underneath the login boxes, and follow the steps to setup a new password for your account.
We recommend you do not use your old password or a password you have used for other sites. Further, if your old forum password was used for any other online purposes, we recommend changing the password on those accounts as well.

    “Why didn’t Bathesda upgrade their security measures after they got hacked in June?”
    That should be the question … why hackers hack is like asking why a fat kid loves cake, because its freaking delicious!

    Pedro: Who/What’s the jester Eddie?  

    A real hacker who really stands up for the rights of the people. Not one who publishes innocent victims private information all of the internet. Basically this guy hacks the so called hackers which has led to a lot of arrests.

    The leaders of Lulzsec and many of Anonymous have been arrested.

    Probably is a puppet Anonymouser. Just using the name. Even though Fallout 3 SUCKED, I don’ t think it warrants a hacking
