CD Project Red is still struggling with the repercussions from the ransomware attack he suffered in February. The Polish study behind The Witcher has published one update on security breach, stating that internal data stolen during the hacking is circulating online. While the developer said he can’t confirm the exact content of the information, he believes the leaflets can contain details about current and former employees and entrepreneurs, with data related to their games.
As part of the violation, the hackers left with the source code for the included titles Cyberpunk 2077 is an unreleased version of Witcher 3. The attackers also downloaded or threatened to download documents relating to accounting, administration, legal, UK, investor relations and even more.
At the time, the studio stated with defiance that it would not yield to ransom demands or negotiate with the plaintiff behind the violation. A few days later, it was revealed that the pirates had make an auction for data stolen in a piracy forum – with a starting price of $ 1 million and an option to buy directly for $ 7 million – but which has apparently been closed in favor of a private offer.
In its latest statement released Thursday, CD Projekt Red detailed a series of security measures put in place after the attack. The company said it has redesigned its core IT infrastructure, used new firewalls with advanced anti-malware protection, implemented a new remote access solution and limited the number of privileged accounts. He added that he works with a network of security agencies and law enforcement agencies, including the Polish police and the national data regulator. The study revealed that he had also contacted Interpol and Europol as part of their efforts to act against the perpetrators.
