Raptr has emailed its users and AMD's Gaming Evolved users, informing them that “user names, email addresses, password hashes, and some first and last names may have been accessed.” The company goes on to inform users that “this means that although the passwords are hashed, users with weak passwords are vulnerable to unauthorized access.”
Raptr indicates that the attack on its databases is potentially “similar to hacking activities that targeted […] Xbox Live and [PSN].”
The company further urges users to change passwords on all websites using the same user login and password combination. Raptr has stated that it will redouble its commitment to security in the future.
