Bethesda apologises after leak of Fallout 76 players' personal information

Bethesda apologises after leak of Fallout 76 players' personal information

Apparently, the whole thing started when Bethesda released the "Power Armor" edition with what was supposed to be a Brotherhood of Steel helmet and canvas bag.

Over the last week, Bethesda has been mired in uproar over a bag. Just a couple of days ago, Bethesda announced that they would be manufacturing replacement canvas bags, as originally advertised. Not only does this snafu shake our faith in Bethesda's ability to keep private information private, but anyone who filed a support ticket and then had half a mind for identity theft could easily have copied the information and filed it away for later use.

The Bethesda Support twitter account tweeted this morning to say the issue had been resolved, and pointed out that no passwords had been revealed. As in, every ticket going through the system.

It seems like the code of the website sucks as much as the one of the game.

Shortly after this post went live, the thread was updated by a moderator to indicate that it would be locked, but users were still able to reply to the thread.

If you submitted a support ticket last night, there's a chance you'd be given full access to other people's tickets.

The information leaked reportedly included names, email addresses and other contact details.

"Since today's maintenance will be addressing a service issue, there will be no patch notes to share once downtime is complete". That receipt could potentially include information like a credit card number. Bethesda takes the privacy of our customers seriously, and we sincerely apologise for this situation'. To make matters worse, data breach notification laws require companies that have experienced a data breach to notify anyone who might have been affected; something Bethesda hasn't done.
