Harmonix Investigating Server Hack

The sites for Rock Band and Dance Central are currently down while
Harmonix looks into an attack that may have compromised some user
information. Fortunately, that information does not include any
financial details or social security numbers.

An email we received (and apparently sent to all users) reads, in part:

The security of your Harmonix user information is very important to
us. We’ve taken the sites down while we investigate this incident and
determine how our systems and the information we maintain may have
been compromised. At this time, we have not found that any of our
users’ information has been published or misused. None of our sites
maintain any credit card information, social security numbers, or
financial account numbers for any of our users.

Thankfully, it appears as though the damage from this server attack is
minimal. However, as a precaution, passwords have been disabled and
will need to be reset when the sites are up and running again.
