CD PROJEKT RED just had their source codes and internal documents stolen in a MAJOR HACK, and they may all end up being leaked!
CD PROJEKT RED Hack : Source Codes Stolen, Servers Encrypted!
On 9 February 2021, CD PROJEKT RED announced that their data – including source codes and internal documents – were stolen in a hack, and could possibly be leaked.
Their servers were also encrypted in a secondary ransomware attack by the same hackers, but they had backups of the encrypted data.
CD PROJEKT RED publicly ruled out negotiating with the hackers, or giving in to their demands.
This would likely mean that their source codes and internal documents will eventually be released publicly by the hackers.
The only silver lining – CD PROJEKT RED noted that they do not have any evidence that the personal data of their employees were accessed or stolen.
CD PROJEKT RED Hack : The Hackers’ Threats
According to the ransom note left on their servers, the hackers stole :
- FULL source codes for Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3, GWENT and the unreleased version of Witcher 3.
- ALL of their internal documents on accounting, administration, legal, HR, investor relations and more
They also encrypted all of their CD PROJEKT RED’s servers, but acknowledged that they would most likely recover the data from their backups.
The hackers are giving the CD PROJEKT RED team 48 hours to contact them to negotiate.
If there is no agreement, they threaten to sell or leak the source codes, and release their internal documents to the media.
They claim that the internal documents will make CD PROJEKT RED look bad, causing their stock prices to fall and their investors will lose trust in them.
CD PROJEKT RED : Official Statement On Hack
This is the official statement by CD PROJEKT RED on the hack :
Yesterday we discovered that we have become a victim of a targeted cyber attack, due to which some of our internal systems have been compromised.
An unidentified actor gained unauthorized access to our internal network, collected certain data belonging to CD PROJEKT capital group, and left a ransom note the content of which we release to the public. 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.
We will not give in to the demands nor negotiate with the factor, being aware that this may eventually lead to the release of the compromised data. We are taking necessary steps to mitigate the consequences of such a release, in particular by approaching any parties that may be affected due to the breach.
We are still investigating the incident, however at this t time we can confirm that – to the best of our knowledge – the compromised systems did not contain any personal data of our players or users of our services.
We have already approached the relevant authorities, including law enforcement and the President of the Personal Data Protection Office, as well as IT forensic specialists, and we will closely cooperate with them in order to fully investigate the incident.
