Cryptic Studios detected evidence of unauthorized access to a user database that occurred in December 2010.  Users may have had their account names, handles, encrypted versions of their passwords, dates of birth, email addresses, billing addresses, and partial credit card numbers exposed.  Some of the passwords that were exposed were decrypted.  Cryptic Studios reset all customer passwords that could have been affected after discovering the breach by performing security analysis. Anyone who uses the same password and email combination for other accounts is encouraged to change their password for those accounts as well.
