Crytek have pulled four of their websites from the interweb after they “became aware of suspicious activity”. The move was done to protect the information of their users. In a further move to protect the folk accessing those sites, the next time you log into crydev.net or mycrysis.com you’ll be asked to change your password.
According to the statement Crytek released to Blue, “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 sites listed below are currently offline:
The following Crytek sites remain online and are not affected by these issues:
“If you have an account at crydev.net or mycrysis.com, you will be asked to change your password next time you log in. If you use your current password anywhere else online, we would also suggest that you reset it at those sites.
“We are working on getting all websites fully operational again as soon as possible. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience.”
It sounds as though no data has actually been lost and Crytek caught a hackers attempt to collect user details before it was able to become active. If this developers further we’ll update the story.
