DayZ forums down after hackers access all usernames, emails, and passwords

This would be a good time to change your passwords if you frequent the DayZ forums.


Bohemia Interactive is notifying players via email the forums for DayZ have been compromised.

The email, which was retrieved by Shacknews, mentions a security incident occurred on “According to our investigation all usernames, emails and passwords from were accessed and downloaded by hackers,” the email reads.

Passwords stored on the DayZ forums were not stored in plain text, although Bohemia still recommends those who have used the same password anywhere else proceed to change it immediately on any applicable website and service.

To ensure this doesn’t happen again, Bohemia will work to replace the IPBoards login system with its Bohemia Account within the next two weeks. “As Bohemia Account is a separate custom-built service currently used by Bohemia Interactive Forums and Store, it offers much better security and its use should prevent similar incidents going forward,” the statement reads.
