News is breaking that Epic Games, the publisher of Fortnite is being held to a ransomware attack by a little-known hacking group Mogilvich. While at this stage the hack is unverified according to Cyberdaily, overnight the group posted details on its darknet leak site. The group claims to have nearly 200GB of data including, the gang says,  “email, passwords, full name, payment information, source code, and many other data,“  this could turn out to be a real security threat for many people as the data is currently up for sale for an unknown amount. Mogilvich says, “We have quietly carried out an attack to [sic] Epic Games’ servers, If you are an employee of the company or someone who would like to buy the data, click on me.” A deadline to purchase the data outright, including Epic, is set as the 4th of March but as yet there is zero proof that they have data at all. Generally, as with the Rhysida attack on Insomniac last year, we would expect to get file examples of just what exactly they have got and an indication of what is at stake. Epic Games holds a lot of payment data, due to having its own Games Store and just because of the size of games like Fortnite, so this could turn into a real headache for a lot of people. As yet, Epic has not commented but we will keep you up to date with developments. What can you do if your Epic Games details have been hacked? We should take this take seriously at this stage and get ahead of the game, even without any proof, and if you have an Epic Games account, you could start by changing your password and enabling 2FA (two-factor authorization) if you haven’t already for it.
