Following a breach earlier this month, Capcom has confirmed it was the victim of a ransomware attack. Both information about Capcom's upcoming games, as well as a notable amount of personal data, has been involved in the breach.
Earlier this month, Capcom stated there was unauthorized access from a third party into its systems. In a new press release, Capcom confirms it's been the been the victim of a "customized ransomware attack," and has verified that some personal information has been compromised, alongside potential further info.
The press release contains a list of both information that's been verified to have leaked, as well as potentially compromised info, including nine items of personal information and sales reports. Capcom clarifies that "none of the at-risk data contains credit card information," but it is concerned that up to 350,000 items of personal info could have also been compromised.
Some information, purporting to hail from the leak, has already found its way to various sites online, with sites like ResetEra hosting aggregate summaries of what's leaked so far. We won't be linking directly to the leaks, due to potentially harmful info being attached to the breach.
Among the reported leaks are details about Capcom's upcoming lineup. This ranges from a supposed release window for the upcoming Resident Evil Village, as well as plans for a multiplayer component, an Ace Attorney Collection, and bringing the upcoming Switch exclusive Monster Hunter: Rise to PC.
"In order to prevent the reoccurrence of such an event, [Capcom] will endeavour to further strengthen its management structure while pursuing legal options regarding criminal acts such as unauthorised access of its networks," read the statement.
