DayZ hacked, but no user data compromised

Bohemia says it's investigating the nature and scope of the attack.



The servers for in-development PC zombie game DayZ have been hacked, developer Bohemia Interactive has confirmed. That's the bad news. The better news is that no user data has been compromised and development on the game continues unabated.

"We have recently detected an attack on some of our servers, the precise nature and scope of this attack is currently being extensively investigated," a representative told Rock Paper Shotgun. "There were no user data on any of the servers. Current development goals and schedules for our games will not be affected by this attack. More information will follow as our investigation continues."

Earlier reports claimed hackers were able to obtain the DayZ source code, but this is unconfirmed, and Bohemia made no mention of this in its statement today.

DayZ was originally released through Steam Early Access in December 2013. The standalone version has since shifted more than 2 million copies. For more on the game, be sure to read GameSpot's Early Access review of DayZ.
