In a statement released on their website this morning (which was also mailed out to all account holders) TRION has revealed that their user account database has been stolen by hackers.
According to the update, information acquired includes user names, encrypted passwords, dates of birth, email addresses, billing addresses, and the first and last four digits and expiration dates of customer credit cards.
TRION are now urging all players of RIFT or anyone who has an account in the TRION system to change their information as quickly as possible.
We recently discovered that unauthorized intruders gained access to a Trion Worlds account database. The database in question contained information including user names, encrypted passwords, dates of birth, email addresses, billing addresses, and the first and last four digits and expiration dates of customer credit cards.

There is no evidence, and we have no reason to believe, that full credit card information was accessed or compromised in any way. We have already taken further action to strengthen our systems, even as we, with external security experts, continue to research the extent of the unauthorized access.
If you are concerned about your information or the hack, it’s important that you read the full update that’s been released which includes helpful information.
Thanks RPGReporter.
