Polish video game manufacturer CD Projekt said in a statement on Thursday that internal company data leaked during the security breach in February is now circulating on the Internet.
The attack damaged some of its internal systems, including the source code of its much-hyped game “Cyberpunk 2077”. After the game was plagued by glitches after its launch, it caused another blow to Warsaw’s business.
The statement said: “We are not yet able to confirm the exact content of the relevant data, but we believe that in addition to the data related to our games, it may also include details of current/former employees and contractors.”
It added that the company cannot confirm whether the data has been manipulated or tampered with since the breach.
“Currently, we are working with a wide network of appropriate services, experts and law enforcement agencies, including the Polish Police Headquarters. We have also contacted Interpol and Europol. We shared this with the President of the Personal Data Protection Office (PUODO) in February The information has also been updated,” the company said in a statement.
In addition, video game maker Electronic Arts said on Thursday that it is investigating recent data breaches in which some game source code and related tools were stolen.
