Ubisoft and Insomniac Games Hit by Security Breaches
In shocking news, two major gaming companies, Ubisoft and Insomniac Games, have recently fallen victim to security breaches compromising their internal information. Ubisoft, a renowned video game publisher and developer, is reportedly investigating a breach in their security systems.
According to sources, an “unknown threat actor” managed to gain unauthorized access to various channels within the company’s systems. This includes Microsoft Teams, Confluence, Atlas, and SharePoint, where sensitive information is stored. The breach lasted for a duration of 48 hours, during which the attacker continuously infiltrated these channels.
Screenshots allegedly taken during the breach have now surfaced online, raising concerns about the extent of the data leak. The hacker aimed to extract around 900GB of data, but unfortunately lost access before successfully achieving this goal. As of now, it remains uncertain which data, if any, the hacker was able to obtain before being expelled from the system.
In a separate incident, Insomniac Games, the developer of the popular game Marvel’s Spider-Man, disclosed that they were hit by a ransomware attack. The hacker behind this attack managed to acquire stolen data related to upcoming projects. Disturbingly, the stolen information has begun circulating on the internet, causing significant concern within the gaming community.
Insomniac Games has since released a statement acknowledging the breach and reassuring fans that they are taking immediate action. The company is currently assessing the impact of the breach and working tirelessly to address the issue and prevent any further compromise of their projects.
