didn't this happen to them before?
What can I do to secure my account?
We are recommending all our users change their passwords. Password can be changed by clicking this link. We also recommend that you change your password on any other Web site or service where you use the same or a similar password. Please note that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your payment details were not at risk from this intrusion.
How did this happen? Which website was exploited? Where did it come from?
Credentials were stolen and used to illegally access our online network. We canít go into specifics for security reasons.
Has any of my personal data been compromised?
The intruder was able to access account data including user names, email addresses and encrypted password. To our knowledge, no other personal information (phone numbers, physical addresses etc. was accessed). No personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your credit/debit card information was not at risk from this intrusion.
What is an encrypted password?
Passwords are not stored in clear-text but as an obfuscated value. Those cannot be reversed but could be cracked, in particular if the password chosen is weak. This is the reason we are recommending our users to change their password.
Has any of my financial data been compromised?
No personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your credit/debit card information was not at risk from this intrusion.
Which measures did you take following this incident?
We instantly took steps to close off this access, to begin a thorough investigation with relevant authorities, internal and external security experts, and to restore the integrity of any compromised systems.
Do you plan to take additional security measures in the future? Is there a risk of this happening again?
Ubisoftís security teams are exploring all available means to expand and strengthen our security measures in order to better protect our customers. Unfortunately, no company or organisation is completely immune to these kinds of criminal attacks.
Is it related to other recent hacks faced by other gaming companies?
There is no evidence that this intrusion is related to any other game companyís previous security incidents.
Was it Uplay that was hacked? Were its servers hacked?
No, the attack did not originate via any Uplay services, the intrusion targeted some of our online systems.
Have other Ubisoft systems been affected? Will your gamesí online stability be affected by the attack?
We instantly begin working to restore the integrity of any compromised systems and are continuing to investigate the incident. The uptime and stability of our gamesí online services were not affected by this intrusion.
didn't this happen to them before?
For the life of me I can't think of why I got this email. What the fuck would I have played recently that required some sort of Ubisoft account?
Sounds like they got the passwords in an encrypted format. I'm not too worried.
What I do know about Ubisoft is that so far they're the only company to care that I've illegally downloaded software with their name on it.. they forwarded info to Comcast and now I'm on a 2 strike rule and then my service is dissolved forever.
This is clearly a hype building action for Watchdogs. *nods*
Also... Comcast won't dissolve your account. That's media sensationalism. They will continue to give you alerts. I would guess after about 56 of them they may want to call you to see if you wear Jack Sparrow outfits in the middle of the night.
I started to check, then remembered that I've pirated every Ubisoft game I've ever played.

Your justification in life is merely self serving. Imagine if society was 100% people like you, fuck living in that place.

I've avoided UPlay since it came out and I have no idea why I got an email from them.
Just a bunch of incompetent dumb twats. Probably use MD5 hashing as well.
Oh ones someone hacked my Uplay account. lol I could care two fucks less about it.
