Earlier this week, multiple reports from reputable Call of Duty insiders TheGamingRevolution and Okami emerged stating that there has been a major security breach at Activision.
According to these reports, over 500,000 Activision accounts were affected by the breach so far.
Yeah, it's legit guys. Change your Activision account passwords and add 2FA immediately.

Activision accounts are apparently being leaked so change your password, although that might not even help because they're apparently generating 1,000 accounts every 10 minutes.

Activision Denies Reports Of Hacked Call Of Duty Accounts
The publisher has since responded to these allegations, denying that a security breach has taken place:
“Reports suggesting Activision Call of Duty accounts have been compromised are not accurate. We investigate all privacy concerns. As always we recommend that players take precaution to protect their Activision accounts, as well as any online accounts, at all times. You will receive emails when major changes are made to your Call of Duty accounts. If you did not make these changes, please be sure to follow the steps provided.”
Even with Activision’s questionable statement, it’s strongly recommended that you reset your current Activision account password for safe measure. Also, be sure to stay up to date on your emails. As Activision previously said, you’ll receive an email when there’s a request to reset your password or if there is a change in your account. Sadly, there is no two-factor verification for Activision accounts so these are the two best ways to keep your account secure.
