High Fidelity Hacked

You may have heard that High Fidelity was "hacked" recently.

Philip Rosedale himself sent out an email giving full disclosure of the incident.

What information was leaked:

  • Email-addresses
  • User names


What Information was NOT leaked

  • Real Life Names
  • Passwords
  • Credit Card Details
  • Pay Pal Information

At this time it's not known who was behind this.  Before you jump to the conclusion that it was some Secondlife Script Kiddie, remember this is a very competitive area of business right now and it could much more easily have been one of his many competitors.

If you had an account at High Fidelity, I wouldn't be very concerned as it doesn't appear that any really sensitive information was leaked.
