Trion Worlds User Database Breached
RIFT and End of Nations beta players will be prompted to change their passwords upon their next log in as precaution. Mobile Authenticators will also need to be reconnected.
As an apology of sorts, Trion Worlds will be offering RIFT players three complimentary days of game time and a Moneybags Purse, which increases looted coin by 10%.
Trion Worlds is the latest in a growing line of online gaming companies to be violated this year that include names such as Turbine, Frogster, BioWare, Square Enix, Codemasters, Sony Online Entertainment and several others. Lets hope that Trion Worlds is the last and the others take a cue and finally start beefing up their own security.
