The websites for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and publisher Eidos have been hacked, with user information and unidentified source code stolen.
Although currently both websites appear unaffected, website KrebsOnSecurity claims that 9,000 résumé were stolen and the personal information of approximately 80,000 registered users of the website.
Logs taken from the alleged hackers’ chatroom show discussion of leaking “src”, likely shorthand for source code. This is unlikely to refer to Deus Ex or any other game though, but instead the website itself. The hackers also discuss leaking the user information itself.
The hackers appear to be a splinter group from hacktivist collective Anonymous, which is reported to be undergoing internal strife – with members now regularly targeting each other.
Both Sony and some members of Anonymous have implicated a splinter group in the security breach of PlayStation Network.
