'Call of Duty: Warzone' made a change meaning players had to sign up with a phone number, annoying cheaters. Now, someone is selling pre-verified accounts in response.
Activision is forcing Warzone gamers to use their cellphone number to log in, and using it as a way to permaban cheaters.
The breach impacted email addresses, passwords, phone numbers, and other sensitive information, according to a breach notification obtained by Motherboard.
The alleged member was arrested around two weeks ago, another member of the hacking group told Motherboard.
This could make people think twice about using a phone number to secure their account at all.
The small list of around 2,500 login details acts a reminder to stay vigilant and use two-factor authentication.
