CD Projekt was exploited by a cyber attack in February. The company has now responded by issuing a statement stating that the attack seems to be worse than thought. In February, CD Projekt stated that an unauthorized person accessed their internal network with an intention of stealing sensitive data from the server.
After the attack, the attacker also left a Ransom note stating that they have the source code of Cyberpunk 2077, the Witcher 3, Gwent, as well as for an unreleased Witcher 3 version. They threatened to release these source codes if the company didn’t meet their demands, providing them 48 hours to contact them. Looking at the current conditions we can assume that their demands were not met, resulting in them releasing the source code on the internet.
Following this attack, the CD Projekt investigation found out that not only the source code of the games were exploited but the company employee’s personal information had also been compromised. In the statement, the company also said that they are working closely with the Polish law enforcement, Interpol, and Europol to find the guilty person. “We are committed and prepared to take action against parties sharing the stolen data,” CD Projekt wrote.
