    Epic Games, the popular game development company responsible for creating the beloved Gears of War series, reported last night that its main forums had been compromised. According to Epic Games, this predicament "may have resulted in unauthorized access to your username, email address, password, and the date of birth you provided at registration." Supposedly, the UDK, Infinity Blade, Bulletstorm, Gears of war, and the older Unreal Tournament forums were targeted, however Unreal Engine 4, Fortnite, and the latest Unreal Tournament were not touched. Epic is currently working with a computer security firm to help determine the extent of the hacks.

    Epic has stated that when their forums come back online, that all passwords will be automatically reset. "It is possible that any information stored or sent by you using the forums may have been accessed," says Epic Games. "Since this is a public forum, we do not collect or maintain financial information, but we advise you to be alert for suspicious email such as phishing attempts." If anyone is registered on any of these particular forums, I would highly suggest everyone changes their online passwords right away.
