Battlefield Heroes Beta applicants exposed in security breach

Griffin: "If you're one of the many applicants for the Battlefield Heroes beta, you've probably been informed of this via a somber mass email, but QA Boss, the organization in charge of registration for said beta test, has experienced a security breach which "exposes QA Boss forum user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords." The cause and extent of the breach, and who, if anyone, did the breaching, we've yet to learn -- nor do we know if it will affect the progress of the beta test.

QA Boss advises everyone who uses a single password for all their important logins, and used said password in the Battlefield Heroes beta signup, should probably change that password as a precautionary measure. Too bad, as our previous cipher was nigh uncrackable -- "drowssaP". It's "password" backwards! Brilliant, right?

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]"

The story is too old to be commented.

You know what? I am so sick of Battlefield being in the name of every new game coming out!

Wolf of The battlefield
Battlefield Bad company
Batlefield heros
Battlefield beach blanket bingo
Battlefield bunker bay bank shots
Battlefield of the losers Battlefield
Battlefield north and south
Battlefield 2030 a.d.
Battlefield: mars attacks
Battlefield: you've got colon cancer

I mean it goes on and on and on. What the hell is with these people and not being original anymore?

I think more people should be worried about their passwords in the wrong hands, I changed all my important ones just now.

im actually looking forward to the public beta, the fact that this game is free is very attractive to my cheap ass

This is why I used a password unrelated to anything important when I signed up through qaboss...
