A security flaw resembling Facebook’s previous hack was discovered, ostensibly wouldn’t even require a password to access user information.
With a ship big enough to hold millions of people, there’s bound to be a few pirates. According to a report by cybersecurity firm Check Point, a security flaw in Fortnite’s platform may have exposed the credit card data, personal information, and even voice chat audio of the game’s entire player base, which totals more than 200 million people.
Epic Games stated to Gamasutra that it has since fixed the security flaw.
“We were made aware of the vulnerabilities and they were soon addressed. We thank Check Point for bringing this to our attention,” Epic told Gamasutra. “As always, we encourage players to protect their accounts by not re-using passwords and using strong passwords, and not sharing account information with others.”
