  • Riot Games Receives Ransom Letter After Recent Hack


    The company had to make a difficult decision...

    Riot Games, a video game developer and esports event organizer, said on Tuesday, January 24, that it had received a ransom note following a hack attack last week.

    “Needless to say, we won’t be paying anything,” the company’s official Twitter account says.

    It is worth noting that such a tough stance towards ransomware has already become a trend - extortionists are less and less likely to achieve the desired result.

    When the incident came to light, Riot Games stated that several systems in its development environment had been compromised and reported that the incident affected its ability to release new content.

    There was also news that the source code of the popular games League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics was stolen during the attack on Riot Games. Representatives of the company assured that no personal data of the players was compromised, but the attack itself may cause problems in the future, first of all, this will affect the timing of the release of updates.

    Together with the source code of the aforementioned games, the attackers stole information regarding the “outdated anti-cheat platform”. “Truth be told, any disclosure of the source code could increase the likelihood of new cheats. After the attack, we have been working on assessing the impact of the leak on anti-cheat and will be ready to deploy fixes as soon as possible, if necessary, ”the company said.

    Riot also added that the "illicitly obtained" code contained "a number of experimental features" that may never make it into official games. “While we hope that some of these game modes and other changes will eventually reach the players, most of this content is in the prototype stage and there is no guarantee that it will ever be released,” the company said.

    “We are committed to transparency and will release a full report in the future detailing the methods of the attackers and areas where Riot’s security controls failed, as well as the steps we are taking to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” the company said, adding, that actively contribute to the investigation of law enforcement agencies.

    The case of Riot Games is far from the first in the field of game development using ransomware. Recall that in September last year, hackers stole gameplay videos from the yet-to-be-released Grand Theft Auto 6 from Rockstar Games. And earlier, large companies such as Capcom, Ubisoft, Crytek, CD Projekt Red and Electronic Arts fell under ransomware attacks.
