The mobile game Clash of Clans has been hit by a major security breach and players are urged to monitor their security.
The game’s creator, Supercell revealed that an attack on the member’s forum meant that some users’ details were leaked online.
Motherboard reported that over one million users were affected and usernames, passwords and even IP addresses had been divulged.
Worryingly, the breach occurred back in September 2016 but Supercell are still urging players to change their password immediately.
The company told Motherboard that, “Our preliminary investigation suggests that the breach happened in September 2016 and it has since been fixed.”
In a statement posted on its user forums, Supercell added, “We take any such breaches very seriously and we follow very strict policies when it comes to security. Please note that this breach only affects our Forum service. Game accounts have not been affected.”
Supercell suggest that users should change any login details that are the same as those used for the game as hackers could potentially access other sites too.
