I think I have an account. Oh well. Not losing anything important.

And does anyone really believe they're done? They're just going to come back together and rename themselves the RoflCops or something.

A real hacker group leaked their info. Not sure why they keep releasing more stuff. It's only going to add onto their charges when caught.

Luckily none of my info was in there.

It's great if you're a casual gamer, unfortunately for EA & DICE, it's not presented in the way to touch the casual market. Had it been linked to Facebook from the beginning, it would've been a whole different story.

As it seems only closed beta accounts are effected, but its wise just to change your accounts password.

Emails weren't leaked. Usernames and unsalted passwords hashed using MD5. Meaning everyone on that list ought to change their password on all sites using their EA password, or derivatives thereof.

KeePass + USB drive for backup is what I'd suggest. Generates and stores randomly generated passwords.

LulzSec disbanding ought to at least decrease the douchebaggery against game companies for a while. Eventually another group of ****oles will take their place, and/or they'll reappear under a different name.

it has already been stated that all info was from an old database when the closed beta used a second login (for the website itself, not account) and that was the info leaked (thus, all info is from CB users)

an action has already been taken to fix the holes and all passwords were reset and emails are being sent right now so people reset their deactivated password

since everything is clear, and fixed, along the conclusion that NO other info is compromised, this gets closed

So is he saying that your BF Heroes beta account is separate from your EA account? Because apparently it isn't.

Pretty dickish move to just close the thread. How about communicating with and helping your users maybe?

No. back in the day you had to have 2 differnt accounts, one for the forums and one for the game, the forum ones are the accounts that have been stolen.

Well that disbandment was more meaningless than expected. They pretty much just instantly swapped affiliation. They're part of Anonymous now.

Looks like that group doesn't care as much about their public image as I thought. Used to be they tried to amass support amongst the public, or at least actively trying to keep people from thinking they're a bunch of ****oles by not targeting regular people and portraying that they were driven by some form of justifiable, or at least understandable cause. But I guess some of these people like to **** people over too, they just don't invoke the Anonymous name when doing so.

not sure, it seems if you made a BFH account when it was in closed beta you are effected, but its always safe just to change your password
