If you're a fan of gamigo's free-to-play MMO library, you may have run into some trouble accessing your account info as of yesterday. The company "detected an illegal intrusion into [its] gamigo account system," according to an official post on the Jagged Alliance forums.

The hack resulted in a temporary cessation of registration, account management, and payment services. The company says that while the game servers are still up and running, "the gAS services might be down for a while." gamigo also says that it encrypts passwords and that "no access to account names and other data is confirmed."

[Thanks for the tip, Tim!]

[Update: gamigo has now posted a letter to its website discussing the intrusion and recommending steps players should take to reset passwords and secure their accounts.]
