This announcement applies if you had an AirBuccaneers Forum account or you purchased AirBuccaneers through the AirBuccaneers.com website.
Some time late December 2013 the LudoCraft.com website and AirBuccaneers.com were attacked by hackers. Once the hack was noticed we quickly took down all our websites and forums.
After a thorough investigation into the matter we have concluded that hackers were also able to breach the AirBuccaneers Forums. This means that the hackers had access to information stored on the AirBuccaneers Forums, such as user email addresses and salted forum password hashes.
No actual forum passwords were stored on the server. Only salted password hashes were stored on the server. So the hackers didn’t have access to the forum passwords themselves. Regardless, we highly recommend that if you used same password in any other services you change them as soon as possible.
The hackers had access to email addresses used to purchase AirBuccaneers through our website AirBuccaneers.com. All other information related to AirBuccaneers purchases made through AirBuccaneers.com website is completely safe as these transactions were fully handled by Paypal and no data was stored on our server.
All AirBuccaneers player data is completely safe as it is stored in a separate server.
No actions are required on your part regarding AirBuccaneers game account or forum account.
Everyone possibly affected by this has been contacted about the situation.
Since the incident we have significantly boosted our website security and the forums are currently kept down until further notice. Once the forums are brought back, we’ll prompt all users to change their passwords.
We are deeply sorry about this incident and any inconvenience this might cause you.
