Ubisoft the victim of cyber attack


Ubisoft, the video games developers behind franchises such as Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry, was the target of a large attack earlier this month. Users first noticed disruption in accessing Ubisoft services, before further interruptions to Ubisoft games, systems and platforms. Ubisoft then confirmed it had suffered a cyber security incident. As a precaution, the Ubisoft IT team carried out a company-wide password reset to try and mitigate any damage – although access had already occurred. Early signs point to the hacking group LAPSUS$ taking responsibility. The group has previously attacked companies such as NVIDIA, aiming to steal data and extort a fee in return for not leaking any customer or business information.
