Epic Games Forums Hacked; Over 800,000 Passwords Stolen

The official discussion board for Epic Games, frequented by developers and gamers of Unreal Engine, "Unreal Tournament," and soon "Paragon," was hacked, exposing dates of birth, IP addresses, registration dates, registration e-mail addresses, and allegedly passwords, of over 800,000 users, reports The Hacker News. The hackers reportedly got their hands on the data by exploiting a vulnerability in the outdated version of vBulletin that Epic Games uses.

Epic Games, however, denies that the hackers got their hands on passwords. "We believe a recent Unreal Engine and Unreal Tournament forum compromise revealed email addresses and other data entered into the forums, but no passwords in any form, neither salted, hashed, nor plaintext," the company stated. ZDNet reports that a larger portion of the vBulletin database, which includes user posts and private-messages, could also have been stolen.

NVIDIA to Credit Marty McFly Modding for Leftover Ansel Code

Earlier this week, it was reported that game modder Marty McFly Modding accused NVIDIA of stealing their post-processing code for Ansel, NVIDIA's in-game photography tool, which lets you freeze your gameplay to take 2D or VR stills, with added post-processing. Late Wednesday, the Marty McFly Modding posted an update on their Facebook page, clarifying that the discrepancy has been "sorted out."

Marty McFly Modding states that they had a word with NVIDIA, including the lead developer of Ansel, who explained that the MasterEffect ReShade.fx was part of some "leftover code" that NVIDIA was testing as part of Ansel's development, and vestiges of which made it to the production version of Ansel. NVIDIA assured Marty McFly Modding that with the next version of Ansel (likely shipped with a future version of the GeForce drivers), it will remove this leftover code, and add Marty McFly Modding to the roll of credits.
