Hackers have found their way into CD PROJEKT RED’s servers. Calling this a targeted cyber attack, the company has reached out to law enforcement and other authorities to investigate the incident. The hackers left a ransom note stating that they obtained the source code for Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, Gwent, and even an unreleased version of The Witcher 3. They threatened that if CDPR didn’t agree to their terms, the code would be sold or leaked and other stolen documents would be sent out to damage the company’s reputation and financial standing.

Developers having their data stolen has become an increasingly common event. While some devices in its network were encrypted, CD PROJEKT RED said that it was able to restore them with backups. The company issued the following statement, which noted that it does not intend to give in to the hackers’ demands and that no personal data from players or users was obtained.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
