Ubisoft have stated today that one of their websites has been hacked. This has lead to private information being accessed, including account names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. However, Ubisoft claim that no payment details have been taken. Here’s the email they sent to customers:

Allegedly, the hack didn’t involve Ubisofts controversial Uplay. Regardless, looks like it’s time to change up your passwords folks.
