Ubisoft issued out a mass email to its users today declaring that their account information database had been compromised and that all users should change their passwords immediately. Ubisoft makes very clear in the email that no financial information is stored by them so there is no risk of financial loss. You can read the entire email sent to Ubisoft members below and visit ubi.com directly to reset your password.
We recently found that one of our Web sites was exploited to gain unauthorized access to some of our online systems. We instantly took steps to close off this access, investigate the incident and begin restoring the integrity of any compromised systems.
During this process, we learned that data had been illegally accessed from our account database, including user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords. Please note that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft, meaning your debit/credit card information was safe from this intrusion.
As a result, we are recommending that you change the password for your account: ******

Out of an abundance of caution, we also recommend that you change your password on any other Web site or service where you use the same or a similar password.
