BioWare Accounts Compromised in Latest Attack

In a breach that’s being called "extremely limited" in scope, the accounts of about 18,000 Neverwinter Nights forum users have been compromised.
 According to EA, this is a "very small percentage of total users," and among the information potentially exposed were e-mail addresses, account usernames, passwords, countries, and birth dates. Any account that was connected to an EA Account opens the door for any information connected with the latter (such as a mailing address and billing address) to have also been accessed.
 
EA and BioWare became aware of the breach on June 14 and began securing the servers for BioWare Edmonton’s NN forums. Legacy BioWare accounts have been disabled and any affected EA Accounts have had their password reset, which is one indication that your account was affected. E-mails have also been sent out to those users who are involved. If your EA Account password still works and you didn’t receive an e-mail informing you of the situation, you should be safe.
 
EA says NN forum users’ information has since been secured. The attack was "highly sophisticated" and "unlawful."
 
LulzSec, which has been the hacker group behind a number of recent attacks, has made no mention of the attack on Twitter, so it seems as if it isn’t responsible for this particular incident. There have been an alarming number of attacks as of late, including those against Epic Games, Bethesda, Nintendo, Codemasters, Sony, Eidos, Minecraft, and EVE Online.
