Information from a recent breach of a competitive video gaming community surfaced over the weekend online. ESEA was made aware of the breach on December, 27th 2016.
ESEA issued an “important” security notice.In response to this Data breach and they have since enforced the following:
- Password reset
- MFA reset
- Security question reset
Fortunately, no credit card, bank account, etc was stored and also so any payments made on the ESEA website, or through third parties, have not been compromised.
Users have also been urged to do the following:
- Change your passwords and security questions/answers for any other accounts on which you used the same or similar information used for your ESEA account, and review any such accounts for any suspicious activity
- Use passwords specific to each website you hold accounts at
- Be cautious of any unsolicited communications that ask you for personal information or refer you to a website asking for personal information
