    Will websites stop storing passwords on plain text, it's not secure, encyrpt your stuff, even monkeys can encyrpt password information.

    They haven't emailed their customers about the breach and nothing is stated on their website. I guess they just go on as if nothing happened.

    Same, I always order games from them since they're fast and cheaper than buying in local stores at my country... I really hope that the wallets section was included on the hacking...

    damit, my debit card is on there, i don't know if it will be too late to remove my payment details now would it?

    i just changed my password, i don't know if that will make any difference though.

    just deleted my payment card as a precaution too, game offer paypal as a payment option so i think that is the only way i will be making payments in the future from now on.

    nope, they are not taking responsibility, i think this is the last time i use them, they obviously don't care about their customers details so i will take my business elsewhere.

    also supposed list of details that were hacked.

    According to that pastebin, my email isnt there, so no worries for me. =3
    Besides I already changed my pass and removed credit information.

    i made an account about two weeks ago... only had my email address in there

    looked at the list on pastebin and my email wasnt there... then i when to 5 gmail accounts and tried all of them, wasnt able to log in to any of them... so i wouldnt be surprised if they are lying about hacking them

    Pretty sure they have more than 200 or so customers lol. This supposed hack is completely untrue, looks like they just stole the list from the Pastebin 'EMAILS HACKED BY SEN' which has nothing to do with Game.co.uk
