Atari is warning their customers that an unauthorized access to Cryptic’s server that happened last year may have spread to their system as well.
“At that time, Atari owned Cryptic and the intrusion may have affected users on Atari’s databases as well,” they said in an email sent out today. “Proactive measures to correct the issue” are being taken.
Atari has reset the passwords for all Atari.com and TDU2.com users believed to have been affected.
“We take the security of our user accounts very seriously and are investigating this issue further with Cryptic Studios,” Atari ads, noting that “this was not an intrusion on our existing database, but one that occurred prior to our divestment of Cryptic Studios in July of 2011.
“Cryptic no longer manages Atari’s databases. Our deepest apologies for the inconvenience.”
