The "decade-old BioWare server system supporting the Neverwinter Nights forums" has been hacked. EA account holders (most recent EA games require you to make an account), were notified yesterday by BioWare Studio Edmonton GM Aaryan Flynn, that their EA account information could be at risk. The only information in danger is the information EA has, which is usernames, passwords and email addresses. EA does not store SSN.

"We recently learned that hackers gained unauthorized access to the decade-old BioWare server system supporting the Neverwinter Nights forums. We immediately took appropriate steps to protect our consumers’ data and launched a thorough ongoing evaluation of the breach. We have determined that no credit card data was compromised from the servers, nor did we ever have or store sensitive data like social security numbers. Our investigation shows that information such as user names, encrypted passwords, email addresses, mailing addresses, names, phone numbers, CD keys and birth dates from these forum accounts on the system may have been compromised, as well as other information (if any) that you may have associated with your EA Account."
The email goes on to urge users to change their password, especially if it is similar to the password you use for other accounts.
