While it's not quite a conspiracy unmasked, Turbine
has officially acknowledged a bit of a security issue with its Lord of the Rings Online
-related web applications. Last week
we reported on the temporary closure of the game's official forums, and today Turbine has issued a press release
that touches on the situation.
As you would expect, it's all very hush-hush in terms of details, and the release recommends password changes for all LotRO
players. While the game itself remains open for business, there is no time table for the restoration of forum services. "We are continuing to investigate and the forums will not reopen until this work is complete," Turbine says.
