Security Breach Australia's Largest Telecom "TELSTRA" Forces 35K Users To Change Password 

TELSTRA, Australia's largest telecommunication company has been forced to change 35,000 users' passwords on its  gaming websites GameArena and Games Shop after a hacking attack. A statement issued by Telstra on Thursday morning warned that information such as user names, email addresses and passwords may have been stolen. 
"We have reset the passwords of GameArena and Games Shop customers, after the sites were victims of a hacking attack," the statement said. "While your password for access to the site has been changed, and the new password has been emailed to you, we encourage you to change it at any other site where you might have used the same password." No financial or credit card details were kept on the sites. Telstra said the site is operated by a third party, so other Telstra customers should not be affected. "We will contact affected customers, with their new password, as soon as possible," Telstra added.
In 2011 we have seen similar attacks when cyber criminals targeted MapleStory Players & Stolen personal details of 13 million players, same things happened to Square Enix server hacked which leads more than 1.8 million accounts compromised.
