Trion Worlds' (Rift) Account Database Gets Hacked!?

Today I received a very disturbing email from Trion reminding me how even big companies have too lax of security when it comes to protecting data. This is just another reason to have a separate username and password for every single different account you have for games, banking, and whatever else online; thank god I do even if it is a pain in butt and from time to time forget which is which lol.

Dear Tarou,

We recently discovered that unauthorized intruders gained access to a Trion Worlds account database. The database in question contained information including user names, encrypted passwords, dates of birth, email addresses, billing addresses, and the first and last four digits and expiration dates of customer credit cards.

There is no evidence, and we have no reason to believe, that full credit card information was accessed or compromised in any way. We have already taken further action to strengthen our systems, even as we, with external security experts, continue to research the extent of the unauthorized access.
