World of Tanks accounts compromised – Get free gold

Wargaming are the latest company to have accounts snagged by hackers and they are advising World of Tanks players to make sure they change their passwords.

As a part of usual security practices, we recently became aware that some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident.  We immediately launched an investigation into the incident and can assure you that no financial information was accessed. However, we believe that some password hashes and email addresses were affected by the compromise.

The security of your account is very important to us at Wargaming. As a precaution, we are launching a global campaign to increase the security of your account. Please reset your Wargaming ID account password using the account management page straight away.

To put a positive spin on the problem, Wargaming launched a “Change your Password” event in which players can earn 300 gold if they simply change their password. It looks like Wargaming are becoming the masters of encouraging players to do stuff by dangling some free gold in front of the players. Still, it’s free stuff so you may as well go change it.

    300 gold is nice and all, but I’m not sure virtual currency really makes up for losing a bunch of passwords.
