The War Z Taken Offline – Forum AND Game Database Hacked

If there was ever any part of you which still felt for some reason that The War Z might be worth a look here’s another reason why that’s not a good idea.

Visitors to the game and its official forums were greeted today with a rather ominous message detailing yet another hacker problem for the game. While The War Z has become infamous for its on-going issues with hackers and questionable methods of dealing with them, this one appeared to be far more serious than usual. The message in question, which can be found here, began with the following:

“We are sorry to report that we have discovered that hackers gained access to our forum and game databases and the player data in those databases. We have launched a thorough investigation covering our entire system to determine the scope of the intrusion. This investigation is ongoing and is our top priority. As part of the remediation and security enhancement process we will be taking the game and forums down temporarily.“

The story is too old to be commented.

Good lord, this has to be the most unfortunate circumstance for a game ever lol. This thing has been ripped apart on so many different levels that I "almost" feel bad for them.

badjournalism1272d ago

I feel bad for neither Hammerpoint nor the people who kept playing and giving them money after everything that's happened. Too bad, so sad.

How is day z ? Is it also buggy or not bad ?

Reverent1272d ago

Day Z is still pretty buggy. By no means is it anywhere near the trash that was War Z though. Day Z has it's fair share of issues, but all in all, it's a really great experience, and it will only get better when the Standalone comes out.

Mmm smell that Karma bakin' in the oven?

KwietStorm1272d ago

I knew I smelled some. Good thing there's enough to go around.

What's the deal with the hate for this game? Did they screw over the gamers? Thanks.

KwietStorm1272d ago

Sure. They screwed everyone by stealing someone else's idea, work, and content, and having the balls to actually charge people for it. If that's not enough, when they released it, it was a bag o crap. Full of bugs and missing menus. That's what happens when you steal something still in alpha and try to make a quick buck on it.
