Unless you have it on good authority from cryptic staff direct Superman0X, I would treat this with extreme caution.  
Hells you say you've only had an account for a few months. Cryptic reset all of the passwords for accounts which were in the database as at December 2010.

"All accounts that we believe were present in the database have had the passwords reset, and customers registered to these accounts have been notified via e-mail of this incident."

So your's would not have been reset. The email which you received may have been an attempt to scam taking advantage of this situation. The situation is real though, not a scam.

It has come to my attention that Cryptic Studios has had their database compromised.

If you have used their services in the past, and have re-used any account name or password, please change them now.  


Never trust technology. Its hack-able and can fail at any time.
