Gaming Giant Ubisoft Hit With Cyber Attack

French video game company Ubisoft has admitted that a cyber security incident temporarily disrupted some games, systems, and services. The incident came to light after graphics chip maker Nvidia and South Korean giant Samsung suffered a data breach earlier this month. Ubisoft said its IT teams were working with leading external experts to investigate the issue.

“As a precautionary measure we initiated a company-wide password reset,” Ubisoft wrote in a statement. “Also, we can confirm that all our games and services are functioning normally and that at this time there is no evidence any player personal information was accessed or exposed as a by-product of this incident.”

The hacking group behind Nvidia and Samsung took credit for the Ubisoft data breach.

In a Telegram channel allegedly run by hacking group LAPSUS$, the organization took responsibility for the Ubisoft incident. They have also claimed responsibility for the Nvidia and Samsung hacks as well.
