CD Projekt RED, the developer behind Cyberpunk 2077, has started issuing DMCA takedown notices to move Twitter links pointing to stolen game code obtained from the security breach suffered by the company earlier this month.
According to an email obtained by Motherboard, CDPR issued notification to at least two Twitter users of the takedown via email through a copyright monitoring firm.
The DMCA takedown notice reads as follows:
Description of infringement: Illegally obtained source code of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. Posted without authorisation, not intended to be released to the public.
A user who received the takedown notice had their tweet removed, which they revealed contained a link a torrent to download the source code of Gwent. “Let’s just say it wasn’t anything I didn’t expect,” they commented.
CDPR revealed earlier this month that it had been the target of a cyber attack, resulting in a ransom request being issued by the hackers threatening to release stolen game code.
