The first Capcom was attacked by computer hackers, now Koei Tecmo was targeted. We really want to be surprised. Instead, we are simply disappointed. The good news is that this new cyberattack does not seem to have the objective of exposing the personal data of anyone, but it still disclosed many things that should have been deprived. And no, we are not talking about new games - we are talking about user login information. About 65,000 accounts on the Koei Tecmo Europe forum have been compromised. Stolen information includes:
- Account names
- Account passwords (in an encrypted state)
- Am mail addresses
Good news: The survey to date shows that no similar credit card information or critical information on customers or employees have been stolen.
Bad news: Koei Tecmo closed the official sites of Koei Tecmo America and Koei Tecmo Europe and made them inaccessible, just to be careful. In addition, Koei Tecmo Europe s internal network has been cut off the rest of Koei Tecmo s internal network. The two sites now redirect to a blank page that reads: because of the possibility of an external cyber attack on this website, it is temporarily closed while we investigate the problem.
The survey is still ongoing, but Dualshockers reports that someone on a piracy forum has claimed responsibility for the attack. The article in question specifies that this poster also claims Sell FTP authentication information and Koei Tecmo s official Twitter accounts via Bitcoin.
Between COVID-19 delaying their fees game and the mort or living 6 capillary fiasco, Koei Tecmo did not have a good time lately. Please leave them alone. Unless you denounce practices really uncomfortable. But in one way or another, we doubt that you will find human rights violations or unjustified surveillance flying people s passwords. Seriously, the more time you spend doing this, the fewer these companies will have time to create games.
