Crytek: User Data May Have Been Compromised

Crytek has admitted that some user information may have been compromised during the attack on its websites over the weekend.

Four of the developer’s websites, Crytek.com, Mycryengine.com, Crydev.net, and MyCrysis.com, were all taken offline after it became aware of suspicious activity. According to a statement sent to Polygon by a Crytek representative, the sites ”were all subject to a security breach that may have resulted in some users’ login data being compromised.”

“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,” the rep added. ”On Friday afternoon we started to contact all affected users via email and informed them of the potential security breach.”

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
