Myth War Online : Domain Names Hijacked

IGG, the company responsible for the MMOs Voyage Century and Myth War have announced that recently the official domain names for their company as well as the two above-mentioned games, were hijacked. As a result, they have changed the URLs for the official websites of the two games.

Statement on igg.com Domain Name Stolen Incident

All igg.com registered members, we are sorry to announce that our official IGG domain names (including www.igg.com , mythwar.igg.com and voyage.igg.com) have been hijacked by criminals and the domain was stolen. The hacker gained unauthorized access to our domain registry provider and illegally transferred the domain to another domain registry.

We want to assure all the customers that IGG's own server has never been compromised. All the user information remains safe and intact.

We are working closely with the domain registries to resolve this issue as soon as possible. To provide continuous service to our registered players, we have made an immediate adjustment to use the following domains for the respective games, until we retrieve the stolen domain:

IGG strongly condemns any illegal activity to hijack Internet domain name. We are proceeding with legal action to bring the hackers to justice. Justice will prevail.
