Since then, we have taken extreme measures to protect the security of everyone registered on the forums and ensure that such an incident never happens again. We take the security and privacy of everyone registered on Zelda Universe very seriously and are always auditing our best security practices. To that end, we have now:
- Limited the capabilities of administrative forum accounts to post raw HTML code as formatting tools
- Reset the passwords of all potentially affected users to secure alternatives
- Emailed the new, secure passwords to all potentially affected users (if you did not receive an email but believe you could be affected, please send an email to [email protected] and we’ll personally help you out)
We understand that, although no system is completely secure, breaches like this are completely unacceptable. We’re downright embarrassed that this happened to anyone on our site. We always want everyone to feel safe when browsing and registering on Zelda Universe. Although we feel like we’ve done all we can to prevent a similar attack from ever happening again, we also know trust must be earned. We hope that our quick and decisive action means that you still trust us to keep your personal information safe from attackers.
Thanks for sticking with us. We’re out there for all the Zelda fans in the world, and we hope that this breach doesn’t stop you from celebrating the series we all love with us on Zelda Universe.
CEO of Zelda Universe
