Capcom have confirmed that the company has been impacted by a massive data breach, leaking personal data of current and former employees, along with potentially 350,000 items of personal data overall.
This follows their report from a few weeks ago, where the company stated that ‘some of the Capcom Group networks experienced issues that affected access to certain systems’ due to ‘unauthorized access carried out by a third party’.
According to this new report, the previously unnamed third party is the hacker group Ragnar Locker, who were demanding ransom money from Capcom in return for the stolen data.
It’s a big blow for the company, who have also had data relating to many of their future releases stolen as well. Regardless of whether the culprits are caught, it’ll be a long road to fix the damage that has been done.
