George Caboy:
"WARNING: I received an email today advising that Ubisoft's database has been illegally accessed (hacked) including user names, addresses and encrypted passwords, and that I should change my password to protect my information. They assured me that no credit card or debit card information is stored with Ubisoft (?). So if you also have such an account, and were not notified, you should change your password."

This was posted today on another MOULA forum: "Myst Online: Uru Live (again)" on Facebook. The person who posted it (George Caboy) urged us to share. Not sure how true is this but he said that this has also been published by PCMagazine online and if in doubt we should check with Ubisoft.
Does anyone know anything about this ? [And please feel free to move this post to the more appropriate thread.]

It appears to be genuine advice - See this article: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2421311,00.asp

[Edit]
Adding Ubisoft's own notice: http://blog.ubi.com/security-update-for ... t-holders/

This doesn't have anything directly to do with MOULa, right?
I assume it only involves services like Uplay (haven't used that for years ;))

Correct, MOULa is unrelated to Ubisoft. I think Cyan's only connections with Ubisoft now are largely historical.

I have a couple of Ubi.com accounts and passwords in my records. I must have created them in the 2003-4 Uru period... probably?

But the current Ubi web site doesn't recognize them, either for logging in or for password reset. So they must have turned over their database a time or two since then.

Well I did not know I had an account there until today. I can't remember why I signed up maybe for technical support, possibly for a Myst game.(so it appears that historical connection is important :)) Apparently my account was created in 2005 since '2005' is in the user-name.
