DayZ servers hacked, source code reportedly stolen

Posted on May 15, 2014 AT 08:07am

Bohemia Interactive has confirmed that its servers were recently attacked, but the developer didn’t confirm or deny reports that the hacker got away with the source code to the standalone version of DayZ.

A hacker going by the name of “DevDomo” posted on a forum what he claimed to be the source files of a very recent build of DayZ. The thread in question has since been closed, but a mirror of it appeared on Reddit shortly after.

However, in slightly better news, Bohemia confirmed that no user data was held on the affected servers, and that the hack wouldn’t affect the team’s current development schedule.

“We have recently detected an attack on some of our servers, the precise nature and scope of this attack is currently being extensively investigated,” a representative told Rock Paper Shotgun. “There were no user data on any of the servers. Current development goals and schedules for our games will not be affected by this attack. More information will follow as our investigation continues.”

Bohemia recently announced that the standalone early access version of DayZ has already passed the two million sales mark.
