Capcom hacked. Resident Evil game developer discloses cyber attack

  • The maker of such well-known video games as “Resident Evil” and “Street Fighter” disclosed in a short press release that in the early hours of Monday some of its networks “experienced issues” that affected access to email and file servers.
  • In response, the company has shut down some of its systems. However, in what must be a big relief to fans of Capcom video games, the attack is said not to have affected players’ online access to the firm’s video games and websites.
  • Even if no customer information has been stolen from Capcom’s internal servers and email accounts, there might have been other sensitive data stolen – such as intellectual property from the video game developer, or details of the firm’s plans for future video game releases.
  • Presently it is unclear how long it will take Capcom to return to its normal operations.
