Earlier this month, Capcom revealed that it was the victim of a cyberattack. In an update this week, the publisher elaborated on the severity of the issue, which has seen personal information leaked.
Initially, the group behind the attack claimed to have stolen 1TB of data from Capcom’s network, including employee and customer data. This has been partially confirmed by Capcom today, with the publisher detailing the extent of data compromised in the attack.
In terms of employee personal information, the details of five former employees and four current employees were stolen in the attack. This includes their name, HR information, signature etc. In addition to that, the personal information of customers and business partners was also compromised, with around 350,000 records confirmed to have been accessed.
The attack also saw confidential corporate information stolen, including sales documents, development documents and more. Capcom admits that there may also be additional information accessed that it has not accounted for yet.
Unfortunately, that is all the information we have for now. Capcom has a breakdown of what has leaked in a press release. So far, no arrests have been made and the people behind the attack remain unknown.
KitGuru Says: From the sounds of it, this was a major security breach for Capcom. Not only has personal information leaked, but it looks like the attackers also have information on Capcom’s internal business performance and its future plans in the form of development documents.
