Hey Guys,

For PC gamer's out there. You may want to check your account, change your password, and put a hold on your credit if you had any PII on that forum.

For Reference:
https://threatpost.com/epic-games...ed/120076/

“If you have been active on these forums since July 2015, we recommend you change your password on any site where you use the same password,” Epic Games advises.

OR="Red"]BE AWARE OF PASSWORD REUSE. If you used the same password as your epic account for somewhere elsewhere, be sure to change that password as well. [/COLOR]



Mods, should this be posted elsewhere so it triggers people's deal alerts? Not everyone reads the news blog.

Good thing I dont use those forums. Seems like a lot of them are getting hacked. Dota 2 dev forums were hit a little over a week ago.

they should've put their server on a Mac. Everyone knows Macs can't be hacked and never get viruses.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Can anyone tell why they would Hack the Epic Forums ? EPIC isn't even making gems anymore they. Are turning more like Valve and Focusing on the Industry. And Industry tools like game engines and software for Hollywood film makers and of course Unreal Engine 4.0 and 5.0.

They have Paragon another MOBA which will fail and Fortnite a new Horde Mode. Defense type game. Both of which lack any polish or flare. All we can hope is tha Cliffy B gets some creative inspiration and creates a new Game.
