EA restores Battlefield Heroes following LulzSec attack

EA has restored service to its free-to-play Battlefield Heroes following last week’s attack by now disbanded hacking group, LulzSec. EA issued a statement to Eurogamer: “Service has been restored on Battlefield Heroes following a short hiatus related to a security breach. Our investigation is ongoing, however it appears screen names and encrypted passwords associated with an early beta version of Heroes have been compromised. To the best of our knowledge, it appears that no personal data was compromised – no emails, account history, credit card numbers or payment methods. Any further updates will be posted on this page. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
