"Your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion."

Ubisoft accounts have been hacked, leading the publisher to recommend all its users change their passwords.

Top men are on it.

"We recently found that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of our online systems," said the publisher in a statement. "We instantly took steps to close off this access, to begin a thorough investigation with relevant authorities, internal and external security experts, and to start restoring the integrity of any compromised systems."

Thankfully, the breach didn't extend to personal payment information.

"During this process, we learned that data were illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. No personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion." Phew!

Still, Ubisoft recommends users change their passwords on any other site where they use the same one.

The publisher is keeping people abreast of the situation on its official forum.
