Over 500,000 Activision accounts may have been hacked.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

According to a new report from Dexerto, over 500,000 Activision accounts may have been hacked as part of a data breach on September 20. Their report says that "all Call of Duty players should be on notice after a major Activision hack has left millions of accounts in limbo."

Activision accounts are used to log into various Call of Duty titles such as Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Call of Duty Mobile.

As of right now, "only" 500,000 accounts have reportedly been hacked. Login credentials have been posted publicly though no links are provided, nor will they be provided. Those who have access to these accounts have been busy changing account details to the point where the original owners cannot even recover them.

This data breach was first reported on Twitter by user "oRemyy" (account has been suspended). It was then later confirmed by a number of content creators such as TheGamingRevolution and Okami.

It is strongly advised that you change your password immediately if you still have access to it. Furthermore, if you use that same password anywhere else, it is strongly advised that you change your password for those other sites and services ASAP. Try to use a unique password for each site and service when possible. And for God's sake, use a password manager so that you don't have to try to remember 50 billion different passwords (perhaps a slight exaggeration). Password managers like KeePass, 1Password, LastPass, and many others can generate super secure passwords for you. They're great. Use them.
