Ubisoft experienced a “cyber security incident” last week that temporarily disrupted some games, systems and services, the company reported Thursday. Ubisoft said it believes “at this time there is no evidence that players’ personal information was accessed or exposed as a by-product of this incident” and says games and services are now “operating normally”. Out of an abundance of caution, the company also “initiated a company-wide password reset.”
News of the incident comes amid a recent wave of high-profile attacks. Nvidia confirmed on March 1 that she was hacked and said that hackers are leaking employee credentials and proprietary information. Samsung said on March 7 that hackers stole internal company data and source code for Galaxy devices. The LAPSUS$ hacker group has claimed responsibility for both of those breaches. It’s unclear if the group was in any way involved with the Ubisoft security incident, though we asked Ubisoft if it’s aware of a connection.
