Harmonix Disables User Passwords in Wake of Hacker Attack
"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," Harmonix stated in an email. "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."
It's been a couple of days since the initial attacks were discovered and the sites are still down as of this writing. On its RockBand.com website, Harmonix notes that the outage is completely unrelated to the end of weekly Rock Band DLC.
