Guard dogs: Legion 558 GB source code allegedly leaked

Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft’s latest entry into the Watch Dogs “Hack the World” franchise, has reportedly been hacked. The source code for the game was allegedly leaked by a ransomware group called Egregor. However, it is unclear what exactly the data leaked. According to the report, Ubisoft is aware of the hacker’s allegations and is investigating the leak. In addition, the ransomware group claims to have breached the security of another video game developer – Crytek. It is also unclear what egregor’s demands are.

It started with a data breach at Ubisoft and Crytek by Egregor in October report from ZDNet. At the time, the hackers claimed they had published the Watch Dogs: Legion data on their dark web portal. You have also lost 20MB of Ubisoft data and 300MB of Crytek data. Egregor reportedly asked Ubisoft to contact them at the time of the breach, but it appears the company has not responded. “If Ubisoft does not contact us, we will publish the source code of the upcoming Watch Dogs and their engine,” said the hackers.

Now a new one report by Rock Paper Shotgun claims the source code for Watch Dogs: Legion (Review) has been leaked and contains 558 GB of data on file sharing sites. Egregor mocked Ubisoft’s security, saying, “We found source code freely accessible on the main network. Passwords in the document files without any protection, all employee and developer data and personal information, contracts, game engines and much more. “

The report also mentions that Ubisoft issued a statement confirming the ransomware group’s claim and that it is investigating a “potential data security incident”.

Watch Dogs: Legion was released last week and this data breach comes at a critical time for the developers who must do their best to plug the leak. It is unclear whether Ubisoft contacted Egregor or whether the leaked data can still be accessed. Additionally, there is no information on whether Crytek was able to resolve this data breach, as Egregor reportedly encrypted the company’s files.
