Cryptic discovers a security breach over a year old

Cryptic discovers a security breach over a year old photo



Cryptic Studios informed Champions Online and Star Trek Online customers of a security breach today. Although Cryptic only just became aware of the breach, it actually happened in December 2010. Usernames, handles and encrypted passwords were compromised. All accounts that might have been affected have had their passwords reset as a precaution.

The intruder may have been able to access other account information such as full names, email addresses, dates of birth, addresses and partial credit card numbers. However, the statement stresses that they don't have evidence that this happened at all. It's a little bit concerning that this went unnoticed for so long, even if the information actually accessed was limited.

Review: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was an intelligent riff on the perils of high school -- you know, if you had thrown a murder mystery in between classes and the principal was a maniacal stuffed animal. Its sequel, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, takes a beleaguered trope and turns it on its head. This is one "trapped on a desert island" story that takes things to another level entirely.more
