Ubisoft is currently investigating reports of a data breach that occurred on December 20th, in which the company’s internal software and developer tools were leaked online. Security research collective VX-Underground shared screenshots of the internal tools on social media, revealing that an individual had unauthorized access for about 48 hours before it was revoked. The alleged goal was to exfiltrate roughly 900GB of data, but it appears that access was lost before that could happen.

Ubisoft has issued a statement acknowledging the incident and stating that they are currently investigating the matter further. They have not provided any additional details at this time. It is unclear what impact, if any, this breach will have on Ubisoft’s operations or on the security of their customers’ data.
