QuakeCon Forums Hacked

id Software revealed that its QuakeCon forums have been hacked and warned users that they may want to change their login information to avoid any hassles:

"In recent days, a hacker carried out an unlawful intrusion of the old forums.quakecon.org site, compromising usernames and passwords," the company said on the QuakeCon website.

"While we have taken appropriate steps to protect the new forums from attack, we recommend anyone using their old credentials on another site to change their passwords immediately."

"We regret any inconvenience this may have caused, and suggest you migrate to the new forums – which will be live shortly – to discuss QuakeCon 2011."

QuakeCon 2011 takes place August 4-7 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas. At the very least this security breach is a reminder that QuakeCon is a mere month away. Find out more about the hack and the event here.
