Codemasters targeted by hackers

Codemasters is the latest major games company to be targeted by hackers.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the company was forced into action after discovering that password and login data for Codemasters.com had been compromised and posted online.


Codies said in a statment: "On Friday 20th, there was an attempt to gain administrative access to the Codemasters.com website. This admin access may have allowed alterations to our company website.

"We responded swiftly with a full investigation to isolate the issue, bringing down Codemasters.com for a few hours to ensure no access would be possible, and returned the website after a security hole was closed. While some staff admin names were obtained, passwords were all encrypted."

 It added: "Our online team take security of user data very seriously and we are reviewing all of our websites and systems to ensure we are as safe as possible, especially as many games companies have been popular targets for this sort of activity recently."

 The news follows recent high-profile attacks on Sony and Square Enix.
