E-Sports Entertainment Association (ESEA), one of the largest competitive video gaming communities on the planet, was hacked last December. As a result, a database containing 1.5 million player profiles was compromised.

On Sunday, ESEA posted a message to Twitter, reminding players of the warning issued on December 30, 2016, three days after they were informed of the hack. Sunday’s message said the leak of player information was expected, but they’ve not confirmed if the leaked records came from their systems.

Late Saturday evening, breach notification service LeakedSource announced the addition of 1,503,707 ESEA records to their database. When asked for additional information by Salted Hash, a LeakedSource spokesperson shared the database schema, as well as sample records pulled at random from the database.
