Cooperative tactical and strategic shooter, Warframe is a very popular game. Due to the fact that Warframe is available on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, and also because of its being free, the game is long and firmly entrenched in the top 20 most popular games on Steam. Expert in information security and owner of the aggregator leaks "Have I Been Pwned?" Troy hunt (Troy Hunt) said that in the darknet sell a database containing information on almost 800 thousands of players.

Hunt told journalists Vice Motherboard that discovered the data breach in early July. He also provided editorial sample data for analysis and verification. Journalists contacted by the game developers, Digital Extremes, and they confirmed that the information is genuine.

Qoute:"After a careful study of the data provided, we can confirm that the list of 775 749 e-mail addresses were obtained through the exploitation of SQL vulnerabilities in Drupal that Drupal has eliminated two weeks after the attack," — told reporters the representative Digital Extremes Meredith brown.


It turned out that the Wareframe website was hacked in November 2014. Digital Extremes said that among the data stolen by hackers was not the passwords of game accounts or password hashes. Also, the attackers did not kidnap any data about game users and their personal information such as real names, physical address or payment information. Was actually compromised-only email addresses of users, their username and date of account creation.

Representatives from Digital Extremes assured journalists that relate to user security very seriously. So, Drupal has long been replaced by your own custom system, which, moreover, does not store any information about user accounts, to avoid potential leaks in the future.
