CD Projekt Red, the developer of Cyberpunk 2077, is still dealing with the February data breach: Reports
CD Projekt Red, the creator of Cyberpunk 2077, has issued a statement in response to its February security incident, alleging that internal material is currently being redistributed online. Early in February, the organization was hit by a hack in which the perpetrator obtained access to the internal network and stole data belonging to the CD Projekt capital group. A ransomware notice was also left by the attacker. Now it appears that the damage is greater than the developer had anticipated.
CD Projekt Red tweeted in February that an unknown actor had obtained access to its internal network and stolen material belonging to the CD Projekt capital group. Regardless of whether the data was exposed online, the corporation stated at the time that it would not give in to the demands or talk with the attacker. It began recovering data and securing its information technology infrastructure. In a subsequent tweet, CD Projekt Red stated that it has learned, or has reason to suspect, that internal data is being circulated online.
While the developer of Cyberpunk 2077 is unsure of the exact contents of the material, it believes it contains information about current and former employees as well as information about its games. “Furthermore, we are unable to determine if the data involved was modified or tampered with as a result of the breach,” it added. The company also states that it will do all possible to preserve the privacy of employees and other parties concerned. It went on to say, “We are committed and willing to take action against those providing the data in question.”
CD Projekt Red is collaborating with Poland’s General Police Headquarters, as well as other relevant institutions, professionals, and law enforcement authorities, to find a solution to this problem. It has taken a number of steps to ensure that anything similar does not happen again. It has deployed next-generation firewalls with advanced anti-malware protection, added new server security mechanisms, and increased its internal security department, among other things.
