The lights are on
Bethesda has sent out an email to its forum users warning of a possible security breach of its user database. Forum users are told to reset their passwords just in case.
An email sent out to forum users reads:
Dear Bethesda Forum User, We have identified a potential breach of our forum user database that occurred Friday morning, Aug 12. We have reset your forum password as a precaution, in the event that any encrypted forum user passwords were compromised. When you next try to login to the forums, your old password will not work. Click the "I've forgotten my password link" underneath the login boxes, and follow the steps to setup a new password for your account. We recommend you do not use your old password or a password you have used for other sites. Further, if your old forum password was used for any other online purposes, we recommend changing the password on those accounts as well. If you have any concerns, visit the following link:http://www.bethsoft.com/eng/contact_email.php
The company had a similar scare back in June.

Email the author Matthew Kato, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
*sigh*.....here we go again!
at least they warned people
... round 6...FIGHT!!!!
At least they got a message out quick enough as a precaution. All you could really ask for (besides preventing any breaches in the 1st place lol).
I though they meant a game breach. Im ok with a forum breach, it's still bad mind you, but a game breach would be horrible.
Ah yes, got that early yesterday, figured someone would probably have tipped you off before I did.
Why would anyone not pure evil want to screw with Bethesda right now?
And I was hoping websites would start having better security after the last fiasco.
Hackers are losers. Wish they had a different hobby, besides aggravating everyone with this crap.
The b*******. Can't these losers just get a life? Well, good of Bethesda to take preventative measures just in case.
All I have to say is that a group of RPG Nerds did this
