Gaming company Ubisoft confirmed it was hacked on Friday, temporarily disrupting its games, systems, and services.
According to the gaming company, the investigation into the breach was underway and they have reset passwords company-wide as a precautionary measure.
In a statement, Ubisoft said, “Also, we can confirm that all our games and services are functioning normally and that at this time there is no evidence any player personal information was accessed or exposed as a by-product of this incident.”
Recently hackers are seemingly attacking high-profile targets such as NVIDIA, Samsung, and many more. LAPSUS hacking group is the major culprit behind these incidents though, it is still not clear if they are the ones behind the Ubisoft breach as well.
According to The Verge, the criminal group seemed to confirm their involvement, though the LAPSU$ hacking group has not been vocal about it, like in the case of other attacks.
LAPSUS$ hacking group is known to ransack sensitive data from high profile targets and hold them, hostage, further threatening to leak the data if their ransom demands were not met.
