2K Games was hacked, issued a worrying statement

On Wednesday, 2K Games, a renowned video game publisher known for the development of some extravagating franchises such as NBA 2K and BioShock, issued a statement confirming a breaching act that may impact the users as well. Apparently, 2K Games was hacked.

The hack engulfs the help desk platform, and as such, may send out messages to already existing players. The full statement confirms that there has been unauthorized third-party access with credentials of one of their vendors to the help desk platform. The hacker sent emails to a certain list of players containing malicious links.

If you have been sent such an email and already clicked on the link, the developer instructs players to:

  • Reset any user account passwords stored in your web browser.
  • Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) whenever available, especially on personal email, banking, and phone or internet provider accounts. If possible, avoid using MFA that relies on text message verification – using an authenticator app would be the most secure method.
  • Install and run a reputable anti-virus program
  • Check your account settings to see if any forwarding rules have been added or changed on your personal email accounts.

A huge fan of puzzlers. Would love to experience the world and takedown on every single and upcoming game title. In the free time love to sing, follow recent game rumors and try to decrypt them in the best possible way.
