Atari and Cryptic Studios Suffered Security Breach, Tell Users About It 18 Months Later

GR: "Gamers with accounts at Atari.com and TDU2.com (Test Drive Unlimited 2) got a rude awakening today when Atari reset all login data after the discovery of a date breach at then subsidiary Cryptic Studios back in December 2010. Atari was quick to point out in the e-mail that they've since sold Cryptic and any break-in of their networks occurred nearly a year and a half earlier than the notification." (Atari, Cryptic Studios, Industry, PC)

Haven't had one of these for a while, I guess we had to hear about an old breach since a new one hasn't happened recently.
