AMD's sociale tjeneste, Raptr, er blevet hacket. Det melder Raptr i en officiel meddelelse, hvor de samtidig råder folk til at ændre deres password så hurtigt, som det overhovedet er muligt.
Det vides endnu ikke, hvem der står bag angrebet, men mange peger på, at det er de samme, som stod bag angrebet på bl.a. Xbox Live tilbage i december 2014. CEO hos Raptr, Dennis Fong, melder, at hackernes udbytte af e-mails, brugernavne og passwords er ganske lille, men han råder alligevel alle brugere til at ændre deres passwords så hurtigt, som det overhovedet er muligt.
Dog lader det til, at de Raptr Reward Points, man måtte have optjent, skulle være urørt, idet adgangen til disse foregår via en to-trinsverifikation.
I mailen, som Dennis Fong har sendt ud, står der følgende:
"Maintaining the highest level of security around your Raptr account information is of the utmost importance to us, so we're very sorry to inform you that some Raptr user data may have been recently compromised in an attack similar to hacking activities that have targeted other high-profile sites and services such as Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network.
User names, email addresses, password hashes, and some first and last names may have been accessed. This means that although the passwords are hashed, users with weak passwords are vulnerable to unauthorized access. It's important to note that our two-factor authentication system used for redeeming Raptr Reward Points ensures that even if your Raptr account was among those compromised, the points you've earned as a Raptr member are protected.
Although the potential risk to Raptr users is pretty minimal, we urge you to access any accounts on other sites and services in which you use the same login and password associated with your Raptr account and change the related password(s) immediately.
Reset your password at your earliest convenience in order to help safeguard your Raptr account. In doing so, we strongly advise you to use a password that is reasonably complex and not associated with another site/service account.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Raptr's Customer Service group.
We're extremely sorry about this situation and are committed to further improving account security going forward.
Founder & CEO, Raptr"
