The group Koei Tecmo subtly alludes to the launch of a game fans have been waiting for. At the same time, the company admitted it suffered a cyberattack on December 25.
The group is well known for the flame retardant saga Dinasty warriors, but also by Dead or alive O Nioh, the popular RPG. In the Japanese post Famitsu a congratulatory postcard from Koei Tecmo
Ninja Team, one of its developers, has several games in the portfolio for 2021. Could we talk about a new installment of Ninja gaiden O Dead or aliveMaybe a ‘A New IP Address’ compilation. We’ll see what they surprise us with in 2021, as they overcome the mediocre year 2020, unfortunately crowned by an attack on their website.
Compromised the privacy of users of its forums
Koei Tecmo admits that the web security of its European and North American headquarters has been compromised. Although they claim bank details were not disclosed, the names, passwords or email addresses of some 65,000 users have.
Although an allegedly responsible person requested money in the form of bitcoins, or I would highlight all the information on December 23, nothing is confirmed and the author remains to be found.
As a precaution, the Europe website Koei Tecmo still inaccessible while the investigation continues. At the same time, he apologized for the “concerns and inconvenience” this attack may have caused, adding that “Appropriate measures” will be taken with regard to users whose data has been filtered. The company also claimed to be working on strengthening web security.
Hope you have not been affected by this problem and at the same time we send our encouragement to the company, hope it does not seriously affect them.
