Important Information regarding your SHK account

Post by Lord Friendly » Fri Jul 26, 2019 3:15 pm

Last year on July 4th 2018 we experienced a data breach by an unauthorized party who exploited a security vulnerability, subsequently acquiring data belonging to Stronghold Kingdoms accounts. The data we discovered to be stolen from us included email addresses, usernames and hash encrypted passwords. We do not ask for or store any sensitive or financial information as all transactions are handled by third parties (e.g PayPal) so this data was never at risk.

The security flaw that made us vulnerable was swiftly removed as part of our ongoing security updates however, it has recently come to our attention that a number of the stolen hash encrypted passwords have since been decrypted and been made publicly available. It is because of this that we feel it necessary to bring this past issue to your attention again.

If you made an account on or before last year, July 4th 2018, you account will have been forced to change its password to ensure its continued security. If you have not changed your password, we urge you to log in of your device of choice and do so as soon as possible. We also advise that you do not use that password again in association with your Stronghold Kingdoms registered email address or any other online accounts.

We can only reassure you that we continue to work hard to protect your online security. If you have any further concerns, or would like your data removed entirely from our systems, please reach out to mailto:dataprotection@fireflyworlds.com with your username and email. Additionally, please refer to this link in order to view our advice in making a new secure password for Stronghold Kingdoms.

I have been asked to change my password just like everyone else i'm sure. However My email address is not a working email account. I am unable to get into it. I filled out a form on the Stronghold Kingdom site. Does anyone know how long it takes to change over my email? Just wondering.
