The data stolen from CD Projekt Red in a cyber attack in February has reappeared online.
In February of this year it became known for the first time that CD Projekt Red had been the victim of a cyber attack. Hackers had illegally gained access to internal data of the Polish development studio and stole source code files of the in-house RedEngine, The Witcher 3 and a ray tracing version of the role-playing game, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Cyberpunk 2077.
The hacking group then set the studio a 48-hour deadline in which to reach an agreement. However, as previously announced, CD Projekt Red did not respond to the request, which prompted the hackers to offer the data for sale by auction. Eventually the group announced that an outside bid had been accepted and the data had been sold.
According to databreaches.net the stolen data has now surfaced online. As from one in the forum of Reset to default split text file, they are password-protected. Users could receive the password in exchange for a $ 10 donation.
In order to prove the authenticity of the data, the group is said to have already released software developer kits for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch without password protection, reports a Resetera user.
