‘ CYBERPUNK’ DEVELOPERS VICTIMS OF CYBERATTACK
The developers of video game “Cyberpunk 2077” said they were the victim of a “targeted cyber attack” involving a requested ransom. In a tweet published early Tuesday, CD Projekt Red said that to the best of its knowledge, the compromised systems did not contain any personal data from players or users of their services. The hacker’s note said the haul included accounting, HR and legal documents and that they had encrypted servers to prevent CD Projekt Red from accessing the data if the company didn’t accede to their wishes. The company said they would not pay or negotiate.
