Bohemia Interactive hacked; user information compromised


Bohemia Interactive has taken to their website to report that they've suffered "an illegal attempt" by hackers that's resulted in a database full of user information being downloaded.

As a result, Bohemia's forums have been taken offline.

"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," Bohemia advised. "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," they continued.

Bohemia has reset each users' password "as a precaution;" those who wish to log back in to a Bohemia site must first use their recover password page.
