NVIDIA forums hacked, accounts compromised

Postby Egaladeist » Fri Jul 13, 2012 2:57 pm

Late last night NVIDIA announced its forums had been hacked following the company's suspension of the service last week. The news comes just a day after it was revealed more than 400,000 Yahoo! Voice accounts had been compromised.

According to NVIDIA's announcement, hackers gained access to user information including usernames, e-mail addresses, hashed passwords with random salt value and publicly available "about me" profile information. The company emphasized that user passwords were not stored in plain text and the "about me" profile information was already publicly available. Information in this section could include a user's title, age, birth date, gender, location, interests, e-mail and website URL.
