Epic Games Hack Puts Nearly 200GB of Internal Data at Risk

Expert Verified By

Another Major Hack After Insomniac!

Story Highlights
  • Epic Games has been hacked by a ransomware group called Mogilevich.
  • They claim to have gained access to 189GB of data, including names, passwords, and more.
  • The group has also put the data up for sale with a deadline of March 4.

Epic Games is the latest victim of hacking. According to a new report by Cyber Daily, a ransomware group, Mogilevich, has hacked Epic Games, exposing around 200GB of internal data.

They have even put the data up for sale, issuing a deadline of March 4. 

Why it matters: Epic Games has become a massive platform home to many games and studios. The company’s data breach can reveal details of many employees and jeopardize a lot of important data.

Not too long ago, Insomniac Games was hit by a similar attack. This attack leaked information on projects like Marvel’s Wolverine, internal sales data, and canceled projects.

This has put over 189GB of sensitive data at a huge risk. It includes email, passwords, full name, payment information, source code, and more. Needless to say, this could be a major blow to the platform.

Moreover, the hacking group has also put the data on sale. On the site, the hackers state that anyone who wishes to purchase this data can contact them. While they haven’t explicitly stated their demands, they’ve provided a deadline of March 4.

The hackers have yet to comment on their move after the deadline. Epic Games is also yet to confirm the authenticity of this hack. However, with the recent incidents, we would not be shocked if the report is genuine.

Apart from the major Insomniac Games leak, Ubisoft was nearly involved in a data breach recently. Similarly, Rockstar Games was hacked in late 2022.

Cyber Daily reports that the group is relatively new but has already hacked three other companies, including Nissan’s subsidiary group Infiniti.

Such attacks put both employees and customers at risk, impacting businesses in several ways. Considering that this issue is becoming so recurring, companies might need to improve their cybersecurity.
