Thousands of Call of Duty accounts at risk, due to reports of cyber attacks in Activision.

Call of Duty Warfare has been one of the biggest online multiplayer hits this year with millions of players registered on it. The game has been developed by Activision, which has also been responsible for many other Call of Duty games. However, recent news seems to be very disturbing for the existing Call of Duty users, where it has been reported that a possible Activision hack has put the account of thousands of players at risk. 

Reports have been coming in about a possible breach in the top games studio Activision, which might have resulted in hackers to access the username and password for thousands of customer accounts. It is expected that over 500,000 accounts have been already compromised due to this. Reports also state that the account password has been changed so that original users are unable to access it. 

The issue started with the user ‘Remy‘ who reported the data breach issue, followed by multiple content creators including TheGamingRevolution, Prototype Warehouse, and Okami reporting the same. The content creator Okami apparently confirmed the data breach and asked users to change their password with the following statement. “Yeah, it’s legit guys. Change your Activision account passwords and add 2FA immediately. Apparently over 500k accounts have been breached already and it’s still ongoing.”

On this issue, an official statement of Activision that has been released a few hours ago, “Activision Call of Duty accounts have not been compromised. Reports suggesting otherwise are not accurate. We investigate all privacy concerns. As always we recommend that players take precautions to protect their accounts at all times. Please visit our player support page for further information, including a helpful set of tips and step-by-step instructions.”
