It appears Codemasters has a lot more in common with the PlayStation Network than we previously suspected. The company is now the proud owner of a major data breach, resulting in all customer information being compromised.
If you’re a Codemaster’s customer, the computer games publisher should be sending out an email alerting you of the unauthorized entry which affected codemasters.com, both corporate and sub-domains, DiRT3 vip code redemption page and the Codemaster’s EStore.
Now for the rub, here’s the complete list of possible data comprised by the hacker(s): Members’ names, usernames, screen names, email addresses, date of birth, encrypted passwords, newsletter preferences, any biographies entered by users, details of last site activity, IP addresses and Xbox Live Gamertags.
The company says that its website will remain offline “for the foreseeable future with all codemasters.com traffic re-directed to the Codemaster’s Facebook page instead. A new website will launch alter in the year”.
If you have any concerns (and we imagine you do), direct all questions and comments to Codemaster’s Customer Services teams. You can reach the team by emailing them at email@example.com.
