Being a gamer isn’t that much fun these days with all the hacking that is going around. Starting off with Sony’s much publicized downtime for their PlayStation Network (PSN) as well as Qriocity service (which incidentally has been brought online just recently), not to mention having Codemasters and Epic Games being breached (in addition to more than 200,000 Citibank credit card account information being retrieved in a hack), we can just do nothing but sit back and wonder just when all the madness is going to stop. The answer? Not anytime soon, as the latest victim to fall under the hacking wave is Bethesda, who confirmed that websites related to their new first-person shooter Brink were breached during the weekend, with the hackers most possibly carting away some personal information. Bethesda reassures their customers that all relevant financial information remain safe, so that ought to help you sleep better at night.

What migth ahve been compromised, however, would be “user names, email addresses, and/or passwords,” so it would be prudent to start changing those passwords if you happen to own an account on any of Bethesda’s sites.

Hacker group Lulzsec is proud to be responsible for the hacking, touting over their Twitter account that they did so because they could and Bethesda did not stop them, “Bethesda, we broke into your site over two months ago. We’ve had all of your Brink users for weeks. Please fix your junk, thanks!” What a start to the week, no?
