One Does Not Simply Hack Into Mordor
Last night The Lord of the Rings Online users were notified of a security issue within the game’s web applications. A Turbine Community Manager posted the warning on the game’s forum, encouraging players to take precautionary measures and change their passwords lest any ill-intentioned Orcs break into their accounts. The issue is said to be “limited in scope” and those whose accounts may have faced the brunt of the attack will be hearing from Turbine soon.
Your accounts stand on the edge of a knife, LOTRO users. Best to get a few more archers on your battlements before they break out the battering ram, know what I mean?
