Hackers breach World of Tanks accounts

Hackers have attacked World of Tanks user accounts potentially compromising players’ personal information.

It is believed that some password hashes and email addresses may have been obtained, but Wargaming has stressed that no financial information has been accessed.

The company has recommended users reset their account passwords as a precaution against the breach/

As an incentive, Wargaming has said all users who change their passwords to include capital letters, letters and numbers with more than eight characters will receive 300 gold for their account.

 “As a part of usual security practices, we recently became aware that some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident,” read a statement from Wargaming.

“We immediately launched an investigation into the incident and can assure you that no financial information was accessed. However, we believe that some password hashes and email addresses were affected by the compromise.”
