It has been claimed that Spider-Man 2 developer Insomniac Games has fallen victim to a cyberattack, resulting in sensitive data about its employees and projects being stolen.

The details:

  • As reported by Cyber Daily, ransomware group Rhysida claims to have hacked the company, posting a screenshot and artwork from the studio's upcoming PS5 title, Wolverine. Employee information such as passport scans, emails, and other documents were also stolen, one of which belonged to Spider-Man voice actor Yuri Lowenthal.

  • The group is now auctioning off the data at a starting price of 50 Bitcoin (approximately $2 million), threatening to publish the information in a week if no bids are received. โ€œWith just 7 days on the clock, seize the opportunity to bid on exclusive, unique, and impressive data,โ€ Rhysida said. โ€œOpen your wallets and be ready to buy exclusive data. We sell only to one hand, no reselling, you will be the only owner!โ€

  • In September, another ransomware gang claimed to have hacked "all Sony systems," which the company said it was investigating. The following month, Sony confirmed that a separate data breach earlier this year resulted in nearly 6,800 current and former employees' personal information being accessed without permission.
