Developers: Fortnite bug potentially allowed hackers to see personal info


(WJHL) – If you have Fortnite players in your house, keep a close watch on your credit card statements. Epic Games, developers of Fortnite, say a bug in the log-in system may have given hackers access to your account.

The security group that discovered the vulnerabilities said access would allow hackers to ” take over the account of any user, view their personal account information, purchase in-game currency and eavesdrop on in-game chatter and home conversations.”

It is not known how many players were impacted by the flaw.

Epic Games says the bug has been fixed.
