CD Projekt Red Game Studio Discloses Ransomware Attack, Extortion Attempt


    Polish game developer CD Projekt Red, the maker of triple-A games like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher series, has disclosed today a ransomware attack. From a report: In messages posted on its official social media channels, the gaming studio said the attack took place yesterday when a threat actor gained access to the company’s corporate network. “Although some devices in our network have been encrypted, our backups remain intact. We have already secured our IT infrastructure and begun restoring the data,” the company wrote on Facebook and Twitter. The game maker also published a copy of the attacker’s ransom note, in which the hackers claimed they obtained copies of the source code for games like Cyberpunk 2077, Gwent, and The Witcher 3, along with an unreleased version of The Witcher 3 game. But despite the threat of a sensitive leak, the game maker said it wouldn’t be paying any ransom demand. Read more of this story at Slashdot.
