A ransomware gang going by the name of Egregor have reportedly leaked files they have obtained from internal networks of game developers and publishers Ubisoft and Crytek.

According to the latest reports from , Ubisoft and Crytek have become victims of ransomware attacks. Apparently, a ransomware hacker group who goes by the name of Egregor has leaked data from the internal networks of Ubisoft and Crytek. The data taken from the companies has been published on the group's dark web portal this week, allegedly.

Egregor gang threats to reveal sensitive information and even more files in the coming days. This way, the group has extorted companies in the past, asking for money in order to stop leaking files.

The group claim that they are in possession of the source code for the Watch Dogs: Legion, which is set to officially release later this month. And while the group is confidently claiming that they have the source code, we suggest you take this with a grain of salt since Ubisoft have not reported any security breaches in the last couple of weeks. Also, it is impossible to verify these files and if they are indeed from the upcoming game.
