AMD's "Dirt 3" Activation Keys Compromised

Advanced Micro Devices, more commonly known as AMD, announced today that the activation keys for the game “Dirt 3," shipped along with many of its products, may have been compromised.

The company has issued a warning stating there could be a delay before the compromised vouchers can be redeemed.

The chip maker also disclosed that the keys were originally hosted by a third-party fulfillment agency website dubbed AMD4u.com, but not on the company’s own website.

"We're working closely with everyone to address the situation. AMD will honor all valid game vouchers, but just a heads up, the current situation may result in a short delay before the vouchers can be redeemed," the company said in a statement, as reported by PC World.

Fans seem to be quite annoyed and furious about these latest developments.

One user expressed his frustration by saying: "I'm quite broke right now, so I'll be extremely irritated if the Dirt 3 key I bought on Ebay ends up getting removed from my account without any replacement."

AMD did not provide any details regarding how many keys in total were compromised and neither did it mention how the breach had occurred in the first place.
