Eidos and Deux Ex websites hacked, thousands of data taken
Posted: 13.05.2011 13:36 by Simon Priest Comments: 12
Sony's PSN isn't the only one experiencing a massive data breach as the official servers to Eidos and Deus Ex: Human Revolution's websites have been hit.

Security site KrebsOnSecurity claims 9,000 CVs were stolen, along with personal data on 80,000 registered users. Logs reveal a 'source code' was raided too.


Itís unclear what this "src" refers to exactly, found in the chat logs of the hackers apparently responsible. Those behind the breach talked about likely releasing all the personal data and file-sharing the 'src'. It's very unlikely to be the Deus Ex game.

Allegedly the hacking group Anonymous is undergoing a 'civil war' of sorts and that a splinter group was responsible for the PlayStation Network attack, and this Eidos breach too. Are other studios on the hit list for these hackers? Could Steam be among them?

War is only good for security companies. Sometimes I have a feeling that security software developers are funding hackers to do such things as security breach, just so that they have more money to earn for selling their "security software"... This world is a mess and if it's possible to make false flag attacks in politics and real war, then I see no barriers for hackers and software devs too.

Honestly I can't think of why a computer hacker would hack a company that makes software most hackers enjoy. I don't think Anons did in Sony or these companies. Probably china.

Or it could be another CIA false flag attack, in order to blame China for "internet terrorism"...

I think it some kind of sabotage to earn more money (any of the internet security companies). Like they sabotage someone and then offer them their internet protection.

That's what Internet policing authorities have been saying for a couple of years now. The only way to get rid of hackers is to shut the internet down - entirely. Only foolproof solution they know of.

A splintering within a Hacker group - how amazing (sarcasm dripping). Destruction of properety - one thing young tech-savvy intellectuals (supposedly) are very good at.
Viva la revolucion!

Screw all hackers anyone who messes with my butter and cookies will suffer, I will get a flawless victory and end it with a fatality and to end it I will rip their heads amd clean it well (predator style) and use it as decoration so that they know that I'm that damn good...back to reality I hope they all get arrested and then raped in the shower while they are catching their soap. :P
