Eidos Websites, Some Accounts Compromised

Share |

Eidos websites and "Deus Ex" accounts have reportedly been compromised by a sub-cell of the Anonymous group. According to Krebs on Security, the main Eidos.com website along with the Deus Ex website and forum were unreachable Thursday morning. Additionally, the "Deus Ex" site was defaced Wednesday night.

"KrebsOnSecurity.com obtained an archived copy of the attackers’ online chatter as they were covering their tracks from compromising the sites. A hacker using the alias “ev0″ discusses having defaced the sites and downloading some 9,000 resumes from Eidos. ev0 and other hackers discuss leaking “src,” which may refer to source code for Deus Ex or other Eidos games. In a separate conversation, the hackers also say they have stolen information on at least 80,000 Deus Ex users and that they plan to release the data on file-sharing networks."
