Vi som lever stora delar av våra liv digitalt via nätforum, sociala medier och spel vet att hackerattacker är oundvikliga. Nu har några av de slöare knivarna i lådan varit framme igen och stulit uppgifter från det officiella #Dayz-forumet. Och det är en stor attack: användarnamn, e-mailadresser och lösenord har stulits.

Lösenorden är dock krypterade, men använder du samma lösenord på andra ställen är det ändå säkrast att byta. Forumet ligger nu nere medan #Bohemia Interactive åtgärdar problemen. Hur kan du läsa i det mejl de skickat ut till drabbade användare, däribland FZ-läsaren renod.

Greetings,

A security incident occurred on forums.dayzgame.com recently. According to our investigation all usernames, emails and passwords from forums.dayzgame.com were accessed and downloaded by hackers.

While the passwords were not stored in plain text, but in a more secure form, it is highly recommended that if you have used the same password elsewhere you change it immediately on all applicable websites and services.

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused, and share with you one of the major changes planned in order to mitigate similar risks in the future. We will be replacing the IPBoards login system with Bohemia Account within the next two weeks. As Bohemia Account is a separate custom-built service currently used by Bohemia Interactive Forums and Store, it offers much better security and its use should prevent similar incidents going forward.

We ask for your patience over the next few days and weeks as we implement this and other security overhauls, as there are likely to be service interruptions and forum unavailability from time to time. In particular, the forums will be down until migration to the Bohemia Account is complete. We will keep you up to date on vital info and scheduled down-time on the site itself and via our Twitter.

Yours sincerely,
Bohemia Interactive
