CD Projekt Red cyber-attacked and threatened by unknown hacker

CD Projekt Red cannot halt the problems they face. In fact, they got even worse. CD Projekt Red has recently been a victim of a targetted cyber-attack. According to the hacker’s message, it holds a lot of info on video games developed by CD Projekt Red, including source codes of games, accounting, administration, legal, HR, investor relations, and more. The hacker threatens to be contacted or release the info in public by sending the data to some gaming journalism contacts.

CD Projekt Red has come out with a statement that confirms this sort of breach. They posted an update regarding the subject on their official Twitter profile. Apparently, CD Projekt Red confirmed the server encryption and has already started restoring the data.

The incident is still being investigated, as CD Projekt Red has contacted the President of the Personal Data Protection Office and IT forensic specialists to investigate this incident fully.

Angel Kicevski started playing video games a long time ago. He started playing competitively since the Counter-Strike 1.3 era. Apart from that, the desire to own a website has always been there. Now, when the mission is slowly accomplishing, he's striving for success and nothing else. Besides that, he quit his full-time job to work on futuregamereleases.com. Being a father of two beautiful babies puts babysitting, gaming, and making poetry out of it a definite challenge. P.S. I play games the way they are meant to be played and consider myself for an Escape From Tarkov addict.
