nVidia hacked – warns users to change passwords

People are lazy, it’s in out nature.
For many people, once they come up with a really clever password [C13verP8w0rd you mean?  Ed], they are inclined to use it everywhere.
nVidia is warning its lazier members to change passwords everywhere, following what appears to be a significant breach of its forum’s security. The attackers made off with an array of data, including:-
  • User Names
  • Email Addresses
  • Profile Information
  • Passwords
We”re being told that the passwords were hashed – so presumably the DEA will be involved at some stage.
Having a big team of experts working on the problem for several days has not resulted in a ‘win’ for nVidia security yet, but a re-launch is expected soon.
Once the security holes have been taped over and a new coat of paint applied, nVidia will send out a huge email blast to tell users what to do in order to regain access to the forums.
"Don't Panic" say the large, friendly blue letters on the front. Well. Not yet.
