Crytek, the maker of Crysis, has pulled four of its websites from the web and taken them offline following detection of suspicious activities over the weekend. Navigating to any of the four domains: Crytek.com, Crydev.net, Mycryengine.com and MyCrysis.com brings up the message “THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY OFFLINE.”
“We recently became aware of suspicious activity relating to some of Crytek’s websites, and acted quickly to take those websites offline for security reasons”, the message reads further.
According to reports, users have already been contacted by Crytek and have been asked to change their passwords as soon as the sites are up – for now they will have to wait as all the four websites are offline as of this writing.
Crytek has confirmed to Eurogamer that all the four websites were “subject to a security breach that may have resulted in some users’ login data being compromised.”
“Although it is uncertain whether the incident led to the copying and decryption of email addresses and passwords, it is possible that users with accounts at these websites have had personal data copied”, a company spokesperson added.
Crytek has said that it is doing everything it can to get the sites up and running and taking steps to ensure that such events don’t repeat in the future. “We’re currently doing everything in our power to ensure our sites and, more importantly, our users, are not affected by such issues in future”, said Crytek’s spokesperson.
