Lord of the Rings Online suffers forum hack

Players of PC MMO Lord of the Rings Online have been warned about a ‘security issue’ on the game’s forums.

Developer Turbine issued a statement informing gamers that some of their accounts may have been breached. The game itself remains unaffected. 

“Recently, we were made aware of an issue with the security of our LOTRO community web applications,” read a statement on the Lord of the Rings Online forums. “We take all potential issues seriously and we took the forums offline while we investigated and resolved the issue. The forums are now open for normal use.

“Please note that we will continue to perform maintenance on our community websites over the coming days and some features may be unavailable from time to time. Game services are not impacted and will continue to operate on a normal schedule.

“Even though this issue appears to be limited in scope, if we believe that your account has been impacted we will contact you directly. We recommend all players change their passwords.”
