Hacking seems to have become a huge trend in 2011 so it should surprise no one that developer BioWare (Mass Effect series) are the latest victims of a malicious hack. According to GameInformer, a server on their NeverWinter Nights was broken into resulting in the pilfering of nearly 18,000 accounts. Luckily the details in those accounts include harmless stuff like usernames and passwords to the forums as opposed to personal stuff like credit card information or social security numbers.
