IN INSOMNIAC HACK, RANSOMWARE GROUP LEAKS OVER 1.3 MILLION FILES

A week after ransomware gang Rhysida announced that it had successfully hacked into Insomniac Games and stolen data, the group has released over 1.3 million files online for anyone to download.

The whole disclosure occurred on Monday night, when the organization stated that no buyer was willing to pay the asking price of $2 million.The overall quantity of the data is roughly 1.7 terabytes.

The material obtained from the Insomniac hack ranged from game release dates and spoilers for the upcoming Wolverine game to, sadly, critical personnel information.

That sensitive information includes internal employee HR paperwork, tax information, internal company messaging, computer information, termination forms, and even passport details, according to Cyber Daily.

Insider Gaming has reviewed some of the leaked material and can confirm that most of the information mentioned is contained within the files.

A contract signed between Sony and Marvel addressing the creation and publishing of X-Men games, beginning with the aforementioned Wolverine title, is also included in the data leak.

The agreement was signed by Sony’s Jim Ryan and Marvel’s Isaac Perlmutter, and it became effective in July 2021.

The arrangement covers a total of three X-Men games.

In a statement to Cyber Daily, the organization stated that it had specifically targeted the company because it “knew developers making games like this were an easy target.” They said that getting into the studio’s network for the data was simple.

Insider Gaming contacted Sony and Insomniac Games for comment on the leaks.

As at the time of writing, neither party had reacted.
