You may have heard whispers, grumbles, and screams from Grand Theft Auto V [official site] players who found naughty strangers had somehow hijacked their Rockstar Games Social Club accounts, changing the password and recovery e-mail address. They were left unable to play online. Rockstar have sworn blind that they haven’t been hacked, rather that the bandits had used logins yoinked for other websites and databases that’d been hacked. Rockstar were slow to respond, but now have a plan to deal with it.
They’ve temporarily disabled the ability to change an account’s e-mail addresses, and say they’re trying to restore already-hacked accounts to their rightful owner within 24 hours.
