Just got this e-mail:

Important: Please change your passwords

for the gamigo Account System, your games and forums


We have regrettably been forced to reset your password!

Dear gamigo User,
We regret to inform you that our database was subject to an attack in the last few days. The intruder(s) managed to acquire (alias) user names and gamigo user passwords. An excerpt from these was published in the gamigo forums.

We detected the attack and are working to the utmost of our resources to repair the damage and to determine how it happened. We are leaving no stone unturned in our efforts.

Your character data, including items, is safely stored on the backup and remains available to you.

We cannot rule out that the intruder(s) is/are still in possession of additional personal data, although to date we have received no report of any fraudulent use.

To prevent any unauthorized access to your account, we have reset all passwords for the gamigo Account System and for all gamigo games!

 There are 3 steps to recovering access to your gamigo accounts and getting back to playing again:

Step 1:

Go to the gamigo account system and set up a new password for the gamigo account system. Please make certain that the new password is not the same as the old one!

Step 2:

Log in to the gamigo account system with the new password and go to "My Games." Please select a new, secure password for each of your games.

Step 3:

Important: Please also immediately change the passwords for all game forums you visit, to ensure that your data is safe there as well.

A detailed set of instructions on changing your password can be found in our guidelines. If you have problems, please contact our Support team.

We greatly regret this incident and any inconvenience it has caused to you.
 The gamigo Team
