Hackers have recently breached the payment and billing pages of BigFish Games and stolen sensitive information on Feb 11 2015,according to the company’s notification letter.BigFish Games ranked 2,817 globally according to Alexa,which was founded in the year 2002.

The hackers intercepted the customer payment information and might have stolen information that included customer name, address, payment card information, card number, expiry date, and CVV2 (card verification value) code, said the letter.

“We are offering a complimentary one-year membership to Experian’s ProtectMyIDÒ Alert. This product helps detect possible misuse of your personal information and provides you with superior identity protection support focused on immediate identification and resolution of identity theft”, said Ian Hurlock-Jones, CTO at BigFish Games, in the letter.

The company also informed that the breach would have affected any new information that was added between December 24, 2014 and January 8, 2015 only and the customers using card data already stored in their profile remained unaffected.

Anyone with CVV2 information can perform online transactions. The code behind the card is a check against online malpractices and requires physical possession of the card to complete an online transaction besides verifying the card number
