It seems that Supercell, the creator of Clash of Clans, has suffered a major security breach. It has been revealed that the company has revealed that during an attack on its member forums, over a million user accounts were compromised.
In other words, some hackers have now over a million accounts usernames, email addresses, IP addresses, hashed passwords etc. Supercell has confirmed this, but it has mentioned that this happened back in September 2016 and it had urged the users to change their passwords as soon as possible. However, the Clash of Clans developer said that the issue has been fixed.
Supercell has posted on the mentioned forum website that it takes such breaches very seriously and it will follow very strict policies when it comes to security. It added that this breach is affecting only the Forum service, which means that the Game accounts have not been affected.
In the same post, the company has included details about how to reset the password for the Supercell forum. If you are using a password on multiple websites, we suggest you to change it on any other websites also, as there are high chances that the hackers will try the accounts/password on other popular websites or games. We remind you that Yahoo has suffered the largest attack back in 2013, when over a billion accounts have been compromised.
The mobile network Three was another victim, after the company has revealed that nine million of its users could have been affected after its customer upgrade database was hacked.
These kinds of security breaches will occur in the future and this is the reason why you should never have the same username and password for all your accounts. If you will have all the accounts and passwords the same on all website, there are high chances that the hackers could access them after hacking a single database of a specific website.
