Notice: The Unreal Engine Forums were hacked on August 11th
530,147 Accounts Affected
Some people are already aware of this. Epic Games has made an announcement about it here, but many people might not have seen this announcement. If you have already changed your password since this breach, you should have nothing to worry about. If you were unaware of this breach however, you should still change your passwords.
Dear Unreal Engine Community,
I am sad to inform you all that today I received a message notifying me about our personal data being leaked. Unreal Engine Forums were hacked on August 11th and the personal information of 530,147 people was stolen. If you have an Unreal Engine account from before August 11th, 2016; I strongly encourage you to change your UE password immediately! I would like to spread awareness to everyone if possible.
To confirm whether or not you have been hacked, you can perform a HaveIBeenPwned search and a LeakedSource search. If you have never done one of these searches on yourself, the results may be shocking.
Data Stolen (According to LeakedSource.com): Username, hash, email, register_date, last_login, ipaddress, salt
