Default Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Websites Hacked

May 14th, 2011, 01:15
Several sites (such as Rock, Paper, Shotgun) are running the story that Eidos websites - including for Deus Ex: Human Revolution - were recently hacked and, possibly source code stolen.
Not surprisingly, Eurogamer clarified that the stolen source is for the website, not the game, although users email addresses were compromised.
Thanks to Alrik for a similar link.
More information.

Further update from square enix regarding the damages:

Eidosmontreal.com does not hold any credit card information or code data, however there are resumes which are submitted to the website by people interested in jobs at the studio. Regrettably up to 350 of these resumes may have been accessed, and we are in the process of writing to each of the individuals who may have been affected to offer our sincere apologies for this situation. In addition, we have also discovered that up to 25,000 email addresses were obtained as a result of this breach. These email addresses are not linked to any additional personal information. They were site registration email addresses provided to us for users to receive product information updates.

No dissemination or misappropriation of any other personal information has been identified at this point…

I just think they should really DISCONNECT machines with this amount of sensitive data !

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

To be fair, if the mechanism to submit resumes is via the website then that machine is going to have access to those resumes and for that matter the code for the website. Someone should get fired if game source code were easily accessible from a machine facing the internet though (which isn't this case).
