In the wake of the whole Sony fiasco I think I can safely say that the last thing anyone wanted to see was more hacking, and yet that’s exactly what we’ve got. As reported by KrebsOnSecurity, an attack by hackers believed to be a splinter cell of Anonymous has targeted the Eidos Interactive and Deus Ex websites. Both sites were briefly unreachable and instead displayed the below image:
In the wake of the hack KrebsOnSecurity have obtained a copy of a chat log used by the hackers, which claims that 9000 resumes from Eidos and other companies have been obtained as a result of the hack, along with information on at least 80,000 users of the Deus Ex website, which the hackers say they intend to distribute on file sharing networks. They also mention leaking “src” which supposedly may refer to source code for Deus Ex or other Eidos Games. It goes without saying but if you have a password on either of these sites which is used anywhere else, change it now. Or better yet, the way things are going, change it now, turn off your computer and shut down all communications with the outside world. Maybe become a hermit and keep a goat.
