Fortnite Hacked Via Insecure Single Sign-On

Looks like there was a single sign-on vulnerability with Fortnite that could have had hackers break into millions of accounts and steal their virtual assets. On Wednesday the researchers at Check Point found the vulnerability which is tied to the way the single-sign-on (SSO) works between PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Nintendo, Facebook and Google and the Epic Games server. The attacker could create a malicious link using a legitimate Epic Games sub-domain to trigger the attack. I’m sure they will be on top of PR and protecting the brand. Every Game is just a Game and can be replaced. Best of luck Fortnite.
