World of Tanks developer says no financial data compromised in PlaySpan hack

Wargaming.net, the company behind World of Tanks, says that the security breach at digital goods and virtual currency reseller PlaySpan affects only a select group of World of Tanks players who used PlaySpan's services and that no financial data was comprised in the hack.

In a statement to Polygon, Wargaming says the PlaySpan security breach could impact players who used the online marketplace to purchase PlaySpan Ultimate Game Cards via uPay. Users who used the same password for both PlaySpan and Wargaming.net accounts are urged to change their passwords.

PlaySpan's web site and Marketplace are still offline following the security breach that may have affected more than 100,000 players.

Wargaming's full statement on the matter is below.

Wargaming is aware of the recent security issue with PlaySpan, which affected user accounts associated with its Marketplace store, including user name, email addresses, and encrypted passwords. This affects World of Tanks players only if they used their Marketplace accounts to purchase PlaySpan Ultimate Game Cards through uPay. Wargaming urges players to change their user information and passwords if they are identical on both PlaySpan and on Wargaming.net/WorldofTanks

Players who do not have common user information for both are at no security risk, and in addition, no financial data was compromised in the security breach.

Everyone at Wargaming apologizes for this inconvenience.
