[UPDTE]Epic Games Reportedly Sees Nearly 200GB Of Internal Data Hacked By Ransomware Group


Epic Games’ communications boss, Jake Jones, has contacted PSU to provide the following statement:

We are investigating but there is currently zero evidence that these claims are legitimate. Mogilievich has not contacted Epic or provided any proof of the veracity of these allegations. When we saw these allegations, which were a screenshot of a darkweb webpage in a Tweet from a third party, we began investigating within minutes and reached out to Mogilevich for proof. Mogilevich has not responded. The closest thing we have seen to a response is this Tweet, where they allegedly ask for $15k and “proof of funds” to hand over the purported data.


Ransomware group Mogilevich has claimed to have obtained nearly 200GB of internal data from Epic Games.

Posting on its darkness leaks site (via Cyber Daily), the group wrote the following: “We have quietly carried out an attack to Epic Games’ servers,” claiming it has obtained “email, passwords, full name, payment information, source code and many other data’ that totals 189GB.

It went on to add that “data is also for sale,” with a link added for “an employee of the company or someone who would like to buy the data.”

The group has set a March 4 deadline for someone to purchase the stolen data, but hasn’t said what it will do if no one comes forward by that time or how much it is asking for. It has still yet to post evidence that it has indeed hacked Epic Games.

The Cyber Daily report states that Mogilevich has previously hacked the Nissan subsidiary Infini USA, and Epic Games is its fourth target, being relatively new to the ransomware scene.
