Now, for the unaware, CD Projekt Red, the developers of popular titles like the Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077, suffered a ransomware attack from an unknown threat actor. The attacker reportedly stole various internal documents, including employee information, contractor details, and other business-sensitive information.
Currently, the company says that they cannot confirm the exact contents of the data, which is being circulated across the internet. However, the data might include details of present or former employees, contractors, and game files as well. Furthermore, it is also not confirmed whether the data has been altered or modified in some way or not.
Nonetheless, the company confirms that they are currently working with various security experts, and law enforcement agencies such as the General Police Department of Poland to catch hold of the attacker(s). The developers have also informed Interpol and Europol, and the data that was shared with the President of the Personal Protection Office (PUODO) has also been updated to match the current situation.
Going forward, CD Projekt Red claims that they are committed to protecting the privacy of its employees as well as third-party entities related to the company. Moreover, following the data breach in February, the developers have implemented an array of steps to prevent such mishaps in the future.
