Important reminder: Helping prevent account hacking

A number of companies have recently disclosed account list hacking incidents that resulted in the unauthorized access of users accounts.

Account list hacking is when a third party maliciously accesses user accounts using lists of accounts that were stolen or otherwise leaked from another company. If a login attempt is successful, the user is then able to fraudulently use the account, and steal, modify, or otherwise compromise the stored personal information.

As accounts can become a target of these attacks if the same ID and password are shared across multiple online services, we recommend that users change their CAPCOM Account password to a unique value to help protect against unauthorized access.

While we take great care in preventing and detecting account list hacking and other malicious attacks on CAPCOM Accounts, we encourage all users to change their passwords regularly to help minimize any risk.
