It was recently announced by game company Koei Tecmo that it was hit by a cyber attack recently, but it was not as severe as the one that happened at CAPCOM.
In a recent post by the game company, it was revealed that there is a risk that login information of around 65,000 accounts of Koei Tecmo Europe’s forum have been leaked. This might have started on December 25.
It was confirmed that the leaked information included account names, account passwords in an encrypted state, and mail addresses.
Thankfully, no credit card information or any other critical customer or employee information was stolen. The only compromised data was login information.
To prevent further damage, Koei Tecmo America and Koei Tecmo Europe have shut down its websites and now currently not accessible to anyone. The internal network of Koei Tecmo Europe has been cut from the rest of the main internal network. Both websites now redirect to a blank page with this text: Due to the possibility of an external cyberattack on this website, it is temporarily closed as we investigate the issue.
There was also a claim that states the attack was discovered on a hacking related forum. It was revealed that it was selling information about FPTG authentication and Koei Tecmo’s official Twitter accounts via bitcoin.
No details yet on when the Koei Tecmo websites will be back online again.
