ProSiebenSat.1 Compromise

ProSiebenSat.1 posted a message to their players a short time ago regarding a possible password and account compromise.

We have detected that there recently has been unauthorized third-party access to one of our systems. The possibility that your data (Email address and password) has been accessed by an unauthorized third party cannot be excluded. We were able to detect the problem promptly and took all necessary actions to rectify the issue.

Your account data is encrypted with us for your security. Nevertheless, we have decided to take preventative measures in order to ensure the highest degree of security.

All accounts that may have been subject to unauthorized access have received an e-mail in which we have requested the user to change their password.

If you have an account with ProSiebenSat.1 you should have received an e-mail to reset your password as noted above. As always it's probably a good idea to reset your passwords on any accounts that used the same password as well. Hit up this link for full details.

If you use the same logon credentials, especially the password, for different online accounts I highly suggest making them all different. Download KeePass Safe software to keep track of all your account info. It's free.

Keepass is literally the second thing that goes up on my new builds, after Chrome. The mdbx lives in my Box account. If only it wasn't dotNet . . .

I'm assuming this doesn't affect EU players who play PS2 via Steam as it links in via SOE.
