Capcom hit by Ragnar Locker ransomware, 1TB allegedly stolen

Japanese game developer Capcom has suffered a ransomware attack where threat actors claim to have stolen 1TB of sensitive data from their corporate networks in the US, Japan, and Canada.

Capcom is well-known for its iconic game franchises, including Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, and Mega Man.

Yesterday, Capcom announced that they had been hit with a cyberattack on November 2nd, 2020, that led to the halting of portions of their corporate network to prevent the attack's spread.
"Beginning in the early morning hours of November 2, 2020 some of the Capcom Group networks experienced issues that affected access to certain systems, including email and file servers. The company has confirmed that this was due to unauthorized access carried out by a third party, and that it has halted some operations of its internal networks as of November 2."

Since the attack, Capcom has been displaying notices on its site warning visitors that emails and document requests will not be answered due to the attack impacting email systems.

At the time, Capcom did not disclose the details of the cyberattack, but in a ransomware sample found by security researcher Pancak3 we see that the Ragnar Locker ransomware gang attacked them.
