Arma fans beware. Personal information of users stored on the servers of Arma III and DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive has been obtained by hackers, the studio has announced. In a statement published on the Bohemia Interactive website, the developer confirms that it has temporarily shut down access to its forums in response to an "illegal attempt" to access users' information.
Bohemia Interactive is currently in the process of resetting passwords and sending out emails to its users, asking them to choose a new password.
We have unfortunately discovered that an illegal attempt has been made to access certain of our online websites, leading to the download of a database containing usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords. Please note due to the encryption of the passwords it is very unlikely that anything nefarious can be done with this information.
We would like to reassure everyone that no other information such as credit card details is stored by us and thus was not at any risk from this illegal breach.
As a precaution we are resetting the passwords of all users which means you will be unable to log into any of our websites/forums until your password is changed. To do this, go to https://profile.bistudio.com/profile/recover-password, enter your email address and press "Get a new password". Shortly afterwards you will receive an automated email from email@example.com with a link, where you can set a new password of your choosing.
In the event that you do not receive the email within 20 minutes, please try searching your spam folder.
If you have any problems with your account, or have any questions/concerns regarding this incident please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
