CD Project Red hackers allegedly sold the source code for Cyberpunk 2077

hackers sold the source code for Cyberpunk 2077

The hackers, who are behind this week's ransomware attack on the CD Projekt Red studio created by Cyberpunk 2077, have reportedly found a buyer for the stolen data. The auction, which was held at the hacker forum, was suspended because the hackers accepted the offer that came from another source.

The starting price at the auction was one million dollars, and there was an option from the interested party to immediately buy the data for seven million dollars. It is not known who bought the data, how much he paid for it, and what he plans to do with the information obtained.

The hackers reportedly grabbed the source code for Cyberpunk 2077, an unpublished version of The Witcher 3, and some other games. Both legal and financial documents were stolen. CD Project Red pointed out that it does not plan to pay for ransomware even if hackers publish the data in public.

Although ransomware locked some devices on the CD Project Red network, the studio was able to start recovering data from its backup systems. According to the companies, the systems containing the personal data of players and users were not compromised.
