Second Life Users Be Warned

Someone might have your credit card details… amongst other things.

BBC are reporting that Second Life has been hacked over the past week in a “security breach in which a malicious hacker broke into a database holding information about Second Life’s 650,000 users”.

An ongoing investigation by Linden Lab into the security breach found that it involved an attack on the software used on its membership database.

It took the serious step of asking people to renew their password because the nature of the attack meant it could not find out which personal records had been looked at by the attacker.
