Take-Two Interactive-owned US publisher 2K (BioShock, Borderlands, Civilization, Mafia, XCOM) reported via a reported hack from one of their support providers.
As a result of the incident, attackers who gained access to the internal network under the guise of 2K Games technical support began sending emails with a malicious link to some users. 2K urges them not to open.
Hackers who fall for the bait are advised to reset passwords in the browser, enable multi-factor authentication, scan the system for viruses and change their account settings to change the forwarding list.
While the issue is being investigated, the 2K support section is inactive – resumption of work will be announced separately. The company too “deeply sorry” for the inconvenience caused.
Recall that 2K’s sister company, Rockstar Games, was also recently hacked: a hacker gained access to unauthorized data about the next-numbered Grand Theft Auto. The studio has already confirmed the leak of materials.
