White Wolf Publishing website hacked

By Derek Sooman on
White Wolf Publishing, who are behind the "World of Darkness" role-playing games, has had their website hacked into. Hackers were able to exploit a flaw in the company's software, resulting in the theft of user data. As usual in these kinds of attacks, the Hackers then threatened to expose the user data on the internet if they are not paid a ransom. The FBI is currently investigating.

"We have no intention of paying this money, and (we) are in contact with the FBI in an attempt to bring these criminals to justice," the company said. "We are choosing to make this public so that our users and fans can take any precautions needed to protect themselves. We are recommending that if you have used your White Wolf password as the password for any other services you use on the internet, that you change them immediately."
