Outlet Cyber Daily has reported that ransomware group Rhysida has hacked Insomniac Games, which has been proven likely given the publishing of certain data online.
Said data includes content for the developer’s upcoming Marvel’s Wolverine game, consisting of at least a screenshot and artwork showcasing other characters who could appear. More concerning, however, is how employee data seems to be part of the hack, including passport scans, an unspecified personal document related to Yuri Lowenthal, the voice actor of Spider-Man, and confidential material.
Currently, the threat is that Rhysida will expose this data within a week, with an auction for the contents of the hack set in place for 50 Bitcoins, which equates to around two million USD.
Rhysida gave the following message on its leak site:
“With just 7 days on the clock, seize the opportunity to bid on exclusive, unique, and impressive data. Open your wallets and be ready to buy exclusive data. We sell only to one hand, no reselling, you will be the only owner!”
Hopefully, efforts are being taken to cease this threat as soon as possible, and no Insomniac Games employees will be harmed in the process. We’ll keep you updated on significant developments concerning this matter.
