CD Projekt announced on their road plan that a patch for Cyberpunk 2077 which scheduled for February 2021 has been delayed a few weeks pushing the February update into March. CD Projekt studios internal network was hit by a ransomware attack at the begining of the month.
The company said regarding this attack (9th February 2021):
Yesterday we discovered that we have become a victim of a targeted cyber attack, due to which some of our internal systems have been compromised.
An unidentified actor gained unauthorized access to our internal network, collected certain data belonging to CD PROJEKT capital group, and left a ransom note the content of which we release to the public. Although some devices in our network have been encrypted, our backups remain intact. We have already secured our IT infrastructure and begun restoring the data.
CD Projekt has been investigating the attack for the last few weeks. CD Projekt's staffers have said that the CDPR’s VPN (virtual private network) has remained inaccessible more than two weeks after the attack. CD Projekt Red has refused to pay the ransomer’s demands, but it apparently hasn’t found an alternative solution to its problem. Staffers have been advised to freeze all of their accounts and report the potential for identity theft to the relevant authorities, based on the idea that hackers may have had access to this information. In addition, they were asked to send their computers to the company’s IT staff to be scanned for potential malware and security breaches. We expect CD Projekt to continue to investigate the attack to make sure that all their systems are safe before allowing staff back onto their internal network.
