Cyberpunk 2077 Publishers has suffered a ransomware attack

by | February 10, 2021 | Cybersecurity News

Attackers hit CD Projekt Red and extracted game source code, corporate documents, and more, which are threatening to release.

The company which is well known for developing games like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher series announced on Twitter that they were the target of “a cyberattack in which some of our systems have become compromised.”

This is bad news for the company which was already struggling with glitches and problems from their latest blockbuster game – Cyberpunk 2077.

An unidentified cyberattack group “gained access to our internal network, collected certain data belonging to CD PROJEKT Capital Group, and left a ransom note,” CD Projekt Red said. The ransom note wrote, “we have encrypted all of your servers, but we understand that you can most likely recover from backups.”

It seems that cyber-extortion has evolved from locking and preventing access to the data, to data leak threats.
