As we informed you this week, the CD Project fell victim to hackers last weekend and lost a lot of sensitive data during the cyber attack. The individual or group left a message that if the company does not agree with them within 48 hours, they will sell or release on the Internet its accounting, administration, legal, investor and HR documents, as well as the source codes of the games.
However, the CD Projekt has stated that it does not intend to negotiate with the attackers and is aware that the refusal may lead to the release of the stolen data. Those two days have passed and they have allegedly made it on the Internet in the meantime discover parts of the source code for the Gwent card game as proof that the hackers actually carried out the attack.
According to twitter account KELA, which moves on the darknet, stolen internal documents, source codes of the RED engine, Thronebreaker, plus basic and nextgen versions of the Sorcerer 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, were auctioned yesterday. It is not clear how much the anonymous bidder paid for them, and according to the updated label, “it was so much that the seller undertook not to distribute and resell the data.”
It is the condition that the seller will not offer the data to other interested parties that records the theory that the anonymous buyer is the company CD Projekt itself, despite the contradictory official statement.
Contribution in the auction forum, using “Moscow time” suggests that the attacker or attackers come from Russia. The starting amount for the stolen CD data for the Project was $ 1 million, and those interested could purchase the data immediately for a bid of $ 7 million.
