Eight million gamigo user accounts compromised

Eight million gamigo user accounts compromised
Last March we told you about an attack on free-to-play publisher gamigo's account services. Today The Verge reports that the security leak has resulted in the credentials of over eight million users being posted on a password-cracking website.

Steve Thomas, founder of a hacking alert service called PwnedList, says the gamigo breach is "the largest leak I've ever actually seen."

Compromised data include usernames, passwords, and email addresses. Users who held gamigo accounts prior to March 2012 are being encouraged to change their credentials.
