CD Project RED made the news again this week, confirming that it had been hit by a ransomware attack. This anonymous hacker threatened to gain access to a large number of employee data The Witcher 3, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Cyberpunk 2077s source codes, giving CD Projekt RED 48 hours to meet their requirements.
CD Projekt RED then refused to negotiate, and instead referred to Poland’s privacy office. The deadline has since expired, and now it appears that these source codes have been auctioned.
As reported by vx-underground, bids reportedly start at $ 1 million for the entire cache – which is rumored to include The Witcher 3̵
CD Projekt RED has not responded to this current development, but it offered a Twitter update last night for former employees. Confirming “we do not have evidence that any of your personal data became available”, it still advised people to take precautions anyway.
