As i am sure many of you are aware, but in December 2010 Cryptic's accounts server was the victim of an attack. It is believed that accounts information may have been compromised.
At the time in question, Atari was the owner of Cryptic Studios.
It is believed that the attack that breached Cryptic's servers may have also compromised the Atari servers. As a precaution, all accounts that may have been affected will be sent an email, and will be required to change their passwords.
