    Ubiplay user accounts compromised. Film at 11.

    Ubisoft doesn't know if it's their users that got compromised, or if their database got hacked, and recommends using strong(er) passwords. Which are pointless.

    I guess this shouldn't be surprising.

    I have an account with Ubisoft. It's damn old though so the password is no longer used for anything important.

    Does that not anything important have your email address? A security question? Last four digits of a credit card? All of those can be used to take over any and all of your accounts. For example: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/...honan-hacking/

    Card isn't attached and my email uses a different more actually hard for a computer to guess password. I avoid security questions when I can but if I have to use them I lie in them.
