Bohemia Interactive has acknowledged that servers for its popular open-world multiplayer survival game, DayZ have been stolen, but insists that these attacks will not affect the game in the long-term. The game is available via Steam Early Access and still in alpha development. Early reports suggested that the game's source code had been compromised or stolen, but Bohemia did not confirm or deny those reports.
"We have recently detected an attack on some of our servers, the precise nature and scope of this attack is currently being extensively investigated," the spokesperson said. "There were no user data on any of the servers. Current development goals and schedules for our games will not be affected by this attack. More information will follow as our investigation continues."
If the code for the game was actually stolen this could be very bad news for players, who could find themselves facing a variety of minor threats like cheating to more nefarious threats like malware and custom made viruses. Then again if the source code was stolen, it might be so old or outdated that having it won't matter.
We will continue to follow this story as it develops.
