UK publisher Codemasters has become the latest games company to suffer at the hands of hackers, following high-profile attacks on Sony and Square Enix.

The Dirt and Operation Flashpoint publisher told GamesIndustry.biz it moved quickly when it discovered password and login data for Codemasters.com had been compromised and posted online.

"On Friday 20th, there was an attempt to gain administrative access to the Codemasters.com website. This admin access may have allowed alterations to our company website.

"We responded swiftly with a full investigation to isolate the issue, bringing down Codemasters.com for a few hours to ensure no access would be possible, and returned the website after a security hole was closed. While some staff admin names were obtained, passwords were all encrypted."

"Our online team take security of user data very seriously and we are reviewing all of our websites and systems to ensure we are as safe as possible, especially as many games companies have been popular targets for this sort of activity recently."

As well as the high-profile PSN breach at Sony, which is expected to cost the company in the region of $170 million, Square Enix also fell victim to a hacking attack last month, with email addresses and CVs compromised.[/p]

Is anything safe anymore?

Microsoft is still rock solid and impenetrable!

Come at me, trolls!

To be honest I have nothing against any of these companies and I certainly wouldn't side with Microsoft in a fight. I was simply pointing out that Microsoft, to my knowledge, hasn't been targeted (yet).

Dang, dude. I used to love one of CodeMasters' games, ArchLord. It's unplayable now, imo, but the PvP was so good back in the day.

There was something to do with phishing the other week but it wasn't a full on attack.

They haven't been targeted because...Hey, who would want to be sued by one of the richest men on earth?

Moreover, as a whole they are a much larger company than Sony and Codemasters

Codemasters? Really? Leave everyone out of this hackers, your war is against Sony not everyone. At this rate on Dec 21 2012, the Internet might end, not the world. Lol.
