2K Games Hacked

2K games has warned players of a phishing scam via its @2KSupport  account. In order to perpetrate the scam, an “unauthorised third party”  accessed customer information through one of its help desk platform  vendors.

Several customers’ emails were illegally accessed and a malicious link was sent to them, according to the statement. "‘We deeply apologise for any inconvenience and disruption’"

A statement from 2K warns players not to click on any such links they  may receive in support emails, and offers advice on what to do if you  have already clicked on them. 

Further details of these precautionary  measures can be found in the full statement below, which includes  password resets and anti-virus software.

– Passwords stored in your web browser (e.g., Chrome AutoFill) should be reset – Whenever possible, enable multi-factor authentication (MFA),  especially on personal email, banking, and phone or internet provider  accounts.

– Use an authenticator app instead of MFA that relies on text message verification if possible. – A reputable anti-virus program should be installed and run – Check your personal email account settings to see if any forwarding rules have been added or changed.
