Bethesda's website was hacked for the second time in three months.  No groups have claimed responsibility for the hack.  The breach affected Bethesda's forum user database and occurred on the morning of August 12.  Information in the database was encrypted, but all user forum passwords were reset as a precaution.  Bethesda is recommending that users alter their passwords for other sites if they were similar to the ones used in the forum.
