Gamigo Account system intrusion

It appears that Gamigo has "detected an illegal intrusion into [its] gamigo account system." They are still working on the details... but this is a warning that if you have used the same username/password combination on Gamigo anywhere else... now is the time to change it.

--Update--
It looks like things have not gone well. You can find more details here.

Update 23 July 12

So many game companies getting this sort of thing recently, I hope Aeria won't be targeted any time soon.

Thanks for the heads up, though I don't use the same passwords and whatnot over there.
