Bohemia Interactive website suffers hacking attempt, user info downloaded

Bohemia Interactive's forums are currently offline and a warning was issued to users about "an illegal attempt" to access unnamed online websites owned by the company, according to a statement on its official website, which also reveals that a database containing users personal information was downloaded during the security breach.

"We have unfortunately discovered that an illegal attempt has been made to access certain of our online websites, leading to the download of a database containing usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords," the announcement states. "Please note due to the encryption of the passwords it is very unlikely that anything nefarious can be done with this information."

"We would like to reassure everyone that no other information such as credit card details is stored by us and thus was not at any risk from this illegal breach."

Bohemia says that it has reset users passwords "as a precaution" and requires users to change their password via the official recover password page before they can log into any of Bohemia's websites. The statement on the website was also emailed to users.

Polygon has reached out to Bohemia for comment and further clarification about the matter.
