Crytek voluntarily took down four of its websites over the weekend in response to ‘suspicious activity’ which was later revealed to be a security breach. A statement released by Crytek advises that the breach “may have resulted in some users’ login data being compromised.”
THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY OFFLINE
We recently became aware of suspicious activity relating to some of Crytek’s websites, and acted quickly to take those websites offline for security reasons.
We thank you for your patience, and expect to have these sites fully operational soon.
“Our Crytek.com, Mycryengine.com, Crydev.net and MyCrysis.com sites were all subject to a security breach that may have resulted in some users’ login data being compromised.” reads Crytek’s statement. “Although it is uncertain whether the incident led to the copying and decryption of email addresses and passwords, it is possible that users with accounts at these websites have had personal data copied.”
As a counter measure Crytek have advised that “Next time account holders visit crydev.net, mycryengine.com or mycrysis.com, they will be asked to change their passwords during log in.”
Do you have an account on any of these sites? Are you concerned?
